Replacing old wall paper

We have an old house with 12' ceilings. It has solid wood walls and the original 100 year old wall paper over a gauze-like material which was tacked on.. How would we repaper these walls?

Re: Replacing old wall paper

I have been doing some major research...what I keep seeing is to use a "liner wallpaper". They come in various weights and can be papered over or painted. Great for covering blemished plaster even nasty old paneling. It is in between all three layers of wallpaper on my 82 yr old walls, so I don't think its a new process. Google wallpaper liner to study!
