How to paint over vinyl wallpaper

Painting over old wallpaper can be both time saving and cost effective. Zinsser’s high adhesion paints prime and seal all in one, blocking stains and odours.

Steps

1. Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from anything that will interfere with the adhesion of the materials to be applied. Ensure all wallpaper is well adhered. Remove all visible signs of organic growth and treat the areas with Zinsser Mould Killer in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to dry.

2. Priming

Prime all areas to be decorated with one full coat of Wallpaper Cover-Up in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 1 hour in normal drying conditions.

3. Decoration

Decorate with two full coats of Perma-White® Interior Matt, Satin or Semi-Gloss in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 2 hours between coats in normal drying conditions.
