Cantu's Painting Service
ProMatcher
Answer: Always
Explanation: Paint eliminates the pattern of the paper. The pattern served to minimize the texture of the paper. Once the pattern is gone, the texture is there for all to see. If paper must be painted over because walls were not sized and removal causes too much damage, walls can be made smooth and seams hidden by skim coating with joint compound.

Tile by Tiffany
Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: You can definitely paint over wallpaper, but I have mixed feelings about it. First, the seams will show through the paint unless you carefully coat them with a skim coat of wallboard compound to hide them. Second, you must use an oil based primer to seal the paper, or the latex paint could cause the wallpaper paste to soften, causing the paper to "bubble". Another "hidden" problem is that many wallpapers have a texture... sometimes not very noticeable until painted.
