    Hi

    I have inherited some old 'tiling on a roll' type wallpaper on my kitchen walls.
    It's got a soft cushiony texture and I think it's vinyl/plastic coated as it's quite shiny and waterproof.
    I'd rather not have to strip it as my walls are shocking (n)

    I have attached a photo of the offending item, you can see it above and to the side of the wall units :eek:

    Now for the question...
    Can I paint over this and if so what type of paint/primer should i use?

    Many thanks in advance :mrgreen:

    Not sure it's a good idea, but if I were to try it I would use Zinsser Bullseye 123.

    yep this is a definite proper use for something like 123, they reckon it's even good on glass
