painting over wallpaper
I tried a search to no avail so I'm posting the question myself. I just bought a house and have two bedrooms that had wallpaper that I wanted to remove and paint the walls instead. The walls are plaster. The first bedroom had very old wallpaper that took two days to scrape off with the Dif glue remover and scouring. The second bedroom has more recent wallpaper that is very hard to scour and the glue remover stuff isnt working. Tried a hair dryer and the wallpaper still refuses to come off. Its important that I get this painted by this weekend, so I'm opting to just paint right over the wallpaper. Any tips? I heard that I should use oil based instead of latex from a guy at Home Depot. I've never had to deal with wallpaper before but I do have experience painting with oil and latex. Help!
