Hchekemian,

 

You can paint over wallpaper. You should first prime the wallpaper with a non-water soluble primer such as oil based Kilz or CoverStain. This will help assure that  no moisture from a water soluble finish coat paint gets through to the paste holding the wallpaper on the wall, causing it to release. If your finish coat is going to be a strong color, you might consider having the primer tinted toward the finish color.

 

Hope this has helped.
