A panel of wallpaper with repeating rows of narrow ovals with pointed tops and bottoms on a cream background is shown laying as if installed on a wall it is taking up the entire background of the image. The ovals are randomly black and dark orange. In the middle third on the right-hand side of the image, four rolls of the same wallpaper design in different colorways are laid lengthwise on top of the black-and-dark-orange panel. Only about a fourth of the rolls are shown. The rolls of wallpaper from top to bottom feature green-and-blue ovals on a cream background, black-and-white ovals on a cream background, orange-and-gray ovals on a cream background and kelly-green-and-dark-green ovals on a cream background.

    We want to wallpaper one wall in the living room.

    First Question: the wall has new sheetrock/tape/mud. Should we prime the wall before wallpapering?

    Second Question:
    Dave wants to use the smooth wallpaper (with water) because that how he wallpapered in the ’70s.

    I want to use the woven peel-and-stick wallpaper because I wallpapered using water in the ’70s, too…and I think peel-and-stick would be much easier and less labor-intensive.

    Outside of being less expensive, is there a quality or performance reason to spend the additional time and labor using the smooth wallpaper?

    We own this house and, once up, the wallpaper will never come down (in our lifetimes, anyway).

    P.S. We did not wallpaper together in the ’70s. Had we been, we probably wouldn’t be together now…
