Painting Over Wallpaper | ThriftyFun

Removing old sheets of wallpaper can be a major pain. Not only is it an extra step to take in the midst of a remodel, but the paper may adhere to a solid wall rather than a layer of drywall. Removal is extremely difficult and may even damage the structure. Avoid this potential headache and general hassle, by painting over existing wallpaper. http://www.ehow.com/how_7878268_apply-paint-over-wallpaper.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage

I don't really think this is good 'upcycling'. Danish modernist style stuff is fine like it is. :P Unless the front was all scratched up or something this was pretty pointless and damaged a perfectly good piece of furniture. There are piles of actually ugly furniture which can be improved (see: overly clunky repro colonial-ish stuff), I wish people would leave the nice modernist stuff alone.
