How can you use the peel and stick wallcovering ?

I have wallpaper in my dining area that is outdated. I would like to use the peel and stick wall coverings that are out now to redo this area. Will the peel and stick work on exisiting wallpaper?

    Yes! As long as the existing wallpaper is smooth and clean. You can see more info here https://homeguides.sfgate.com/hang-new-wallpaper-over-old-wallpaper-91229.html

    It might if it’s clean and smooth. If not there are adhesives that will work. You can find them

    in your hardware store.

    Depends on it's texture. If it is textured (the existing)? Air pockets will prevent proper adhesion and it will eventually fall off. Are the existing seams noticable due to any overlap? Cut close to both sides of seams, remove the strip and fill with wall spackle and smooth until even with both sides. Of your current wall paper is totally smooth, still firmly attached to the wall so and corners? Then yes....you can wallpaper over the existing. If not? I would take it down (mix fabric softener 50/50 with water, score the wallpaper with a knife, take a rag and spread the solution on the walls like you are washing them and the paper should peel off easy. Let dry, then sand them smooth and then remove dust with a damp rag. Let dry. Walls are then ready.
