I know that gyproc do a sealer for plasterboard but it seems dear for the small area i'm planing to wallpaper. i have seen some people suggest using undercoat paint.

also with this being in a bathroom do i need to consider using a certain type of wallpaper paste.

the original plan was to tile it all which would havw been more easier but the other half changed her mind and now i'm a bit stumped for the best way to proceed.

all joints are filled and taped but i don't know if the finish is good enough to be just painted which is why i want to use lining paper.

any advice most apprecaited. i'm off work next week and she's looking for some progress to be made.
