A: Hi Lillie Ann, I assume your "sculptured boarder" is a wallpaper accent border. You may paint over wallpaper, but in this case since the wallpaper is just a border, it may be easier to achieve a smooth, even finish by removing the border. Let me describe the process of painting wallpaper and let you decide. You should only paint wallpaper or wallpaper borders that are secure and in good condition. Peeling or damaged wallpaper will lift from the wall even after it has been painted. If there is a texture on the wallpaper, it may appear even after painting a couple of coats. First, use wallpaper adhesive to glue down any seams that may be lifting slightly. Clean the wallpaper and remove any dirt, wallpaper glue or grime from the paper. Prime with an oil-based primer such as Behr Premium Plus Oil-Based Primer and Sealer (see link below). Allow the primer to dry. Next, apply drywall mud to the wallpaper seams and border edges, allow it to dry and sand smooth. It is important that the seams are smooth or they will be visible when you apply your topcoat of paint. Apply a second coat of Behr Premium Plus Oil-Based Primer and Sealer and allow it to dry. Apply Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Paint and Primer in One or Behr Premium Plus Paint over the primed surface. http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202951076/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=behr+oil+based+primer&storeId=10051 Thanks for your inquiry!
