wallpaper over vinyl wallboard
I am trying to wallpaper over the typical vinyl wallboard in a small area. I wiped the surface down, and then tried putting up the paper however, it seemed the paper wasn't sticking once it dried. There was allot of paste on the paper (wavery prepasted) so much so that when I used the wallpaper brush to apply to get the bubbles out, the paste came out around the edges. Does anyone have any "easy suggestions" on doing this? I had painted over this same wallboard in my bathroom but decided I didn't like the look so I wallpapered over that and didn't have this problem. I'm afraid I'm going to have to paint it with Kilz (spelling) before I can paper. For an expensive MH, this was really put together poorly and the customer service with the manufacturer is horrible. I won't mind the walls so much if it weren't for those terrible strips and the wallboard underneath is 1/2" in some areas apart.
I've also laid porcelain tile in the family room and hardwood in the dining room.
