it is indeed , all you have to do is make sure that the wallpaper is secure to the wall , if not stick it down with border paste and a 1" brush.

clean of any marks , and if there are any signs of damp or mould they should be treated with a 50:50 solution of bleach and water , also allow the surface to dry out before painting.

hope this helped you out
