Dear Lillie: Matt and Meredith's HUGE Kitchen Makeover - tips at the end of the post about painting over wallpaper....however it has to be wallpaper that will not come off. if it's starting to peel, this won't work.
Removing old sheets of wallpaper can be a major pain. Not only is it an extra step to take in the midst of a remodel, but the paper may adhere to a solid wall rather than a layer of drywall. Removal is extremely difficult and may even damage the structure. Avoid this potential headache and general hassle, by painting over existing wallpaper. http://www.ehow.com/how_7878268_apply-paint-over-wallpaper.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage
