I wallpapered my bathroom four months ago with Laura Ashley wallpaper (self adhesive)over the existing wallpaper for fear of the condition of the walls. Since then parts of it have come away so I re-paste it but yet again it is coming away. It is a north facing wall of my cottage so the coldest wall of the house - what have I done wrong? Any advice would be appreciated
What haven't you done wrong.:p sorry If the original paper was stuck to the wall and in good shape it is possible to go over it but many adhesives may not agree with the surface especially if it is a semi gloss or glossy surface. Of course the right way is to strip it down to the wall make any repairs to the wall and prime. What I would suggest you try is to remove your new layer from the affected area and scuff the paper with a scotch bright pad (or green side of kitchen sponge) and mild cleaner should would work well or lightly sand with a meduim grit sand paper. then prime it with a sealer primer. I would expect the new paper to stick well to the prepared surface.
