    Betty,
    While you can paint over wallpaper if it is in good condition, it is far from an ideal solution and you might consider stripping it instead, particularly if it has a rough finish. Any imperfections in the wallpaper—like seams, bubbles, tears, patterns, and textures—will show through the paint. To check for flaws, hold a bright directional light like a desk lamp or trouble light against the wall to highlight imperfections, then glue down any bubbles or loose spots. Skim over seams with joint compound and lightly sand smooth. Latex paint can soak through the wallpaper and loosen the adhesive, so prime first with an oil based primer/sealer and let dry before top coating with latex wall paint.
