check the paint underneath the wallpaper

Firstly – great site – some funny stories on here!

My story – I was decorating the main bedroom in our house last summer. Spend the first stripping off the old wallpaper to reveal a really really old coat of green paint on the walls. knowing i only had another day left off work I decided to put the wallpaper over the top of it, thinking it will be thick enough to cover it so i got it all done and it looked a tidy enough job when I finished later on that night.

But then the next morning in daylight it appeared that the wallpaper paste must have given the green paint a bit of moisture and in certain areas of the wall I now had green tints to the cream wallpaper!

Its still like that now, but I’ve learnt to live with it!
