The previous owners of our house were big fans of wallpaper. So much so that they put 3-4 layers of it, at least, in every room but the kitchen.

The bedrooms had wallpaper borders all around the ceilings that we removed first, and as we started on the rest of it we realized it was several layers. At that point I made an executive decision and spent a night finding, spackling over, and smoothing down the seams, and once it dried we just painted over it. Looks fine. No regrets. Plus, at this point in the house's age I fear the wallpaper layers may actually be crucial to the integrity of the walls .
