I'm not prepared to repair it by repainting. I'm planning to hang wallpapers over it. I have following questions seeking for advice.

1)
I'll peel off all latex paint having cracking/flaking/peeling problem. The latex was painted on concrete wall which is quite smooth. But I will not sand the wall after peeling off the problematic paint. Because it will make my flat flying with dust NOT easy to clean.

2)
Would it be a good idea to add lining paper? If YES which grade? 1000?

3)
Or can I hang wallpaper direct without lining paper?

4)
Or is there any better idea to rescue the damaged wall?


I suppose the cracking, flaking and peeling of latex paint is due to the high humidity in Summer here which last 4~5 months with ave 80% humidity and 30~34 deg C (86~93 deg F).

Advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
