      Hiya! It’s hard to say without seeing the wallpaper, but it sounds as if you have a dark coloured wallpaper and you’re seeing the white edges of the paper at the wallpaper seams. If this is the case, you can watch my YouTube video to help you fix this issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI2qBooTlbI. If you try my tip, I recommend testing the paint on an inconspicuous area in case you run into any issues. Let me know how it turns out! :)

    Help!
    I have 20 year old wallpaper that I want to keep up and is in good condition except the seems are now oddly butting together. It looks bad. Is there anything I can do? I have watched all of your videos listed here but didn’t see my solution. I will try to attach an example picture. Thank you for your advice.
