Old Wall Paper

I have old wall paper on my kitchen walls. They still look good but the glue on the seams are starting to turn yellowish. Is there anything I can do? I know I can paint over them, but I really don't want to unless there is nothing I can do. By the way the wall paper is vinyl. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks

Painting the yellowish part of the wallpaper is a good idea. Or why not apply a tape to that yellowish part. But of course, you must do it dramatically so it wont spoil the overall appearance of your wallpaper. Color should also complement your wallpaper.
