My wallpaper/ walls is made out of horse hair, should i paint over the old wallpaper?

Its an old house, my grandmas, were trying to sell it but it still has the old original wallpaper, my dad doesnt want to take it down cause he said its to much work and were out of money to try and fix the house. So should i paint over the old wallpaper? or should i try and take it down, but if i do what will happen? we dont have the money to destroy the wall by trying to take it down.

Depending on what the wall paper is on top of you could run into a big mess…However, in many older homes underneath is painted plaster. In our home we had really slick paint underneath and with the adhesive remover and a putty knife it scraped right off. I would check to see if there are any loose areas where you could pull it up a little without ruining it to see what’s underneath. Chances are if a potential buyer walks in and sees that they are going to have to invest in the extra work they may not buy. Consult your realtor as many are experts in staging, pointing out problem areas, etc. I wouldn’t paint over the wall paper unless you put the paintable wall paper up over it. (Not sure that would look very good though!)
