Seams on painted wallpaper are showing. Best way to cover up?

We recently painted over old wallpaper. For the most part this worked well. There are a couple of places where the seams are showing. What's the best way to fix this?

    Putting a texture over the walls after priming them can repair obvious flaws. Spraying texture is an extremely messy job, but it's very fast. You can rent all the necessary equipment, or buy the hopper and nozzle if you already have an air compressor. A hand-applied Venetian plaster or Mediterranean texture is quite easy to do, although it will take a bit longer than spraying. Once textured, nobody but you needs to know there are wallpaper seams under the finished job.

    Use molding that is used for that reason and paint it the color of room
