Can I Paint Over Wallpaper?

Is it possible to texture and paint on top of wallpaper?  It is in the kitchen and bathroom and has been there for 26 years. It only has one of two places at the bottom where is has tried to curl.  If it possible what is the best type of paint to use?

While you certainly can paint over wallpaper, we would not recomend it.  Always best to strip the paper, then prime and paint the wall below - using a good quality flat paint.If you really don't want to remove the paper, then you can paint but keep in mind that will make it even harder to remove if you decide to do that later.
