My kitchen had 48-year-old wallpaper that just would not come off. After trying every wallpaper removal method I could find on an inconspicuous test spot, I did the unthinkable! I covered the wallpaper with three coats of Kilz latex primer and then two coats of colored latex paint. The result was amazing and the walls are flawless. My friends have said, "What a beautiful paint job! But how did you get all that old wallpaper off?"
