I decide to paint over the wallpaper in the bathroom, because I thought it would be to hard to remove the old paper since I dont know if the previous owner primed the walls before putting wallpaper on it. I spackled the seams and sand them smooth(so what I thought). Now after the prime and two coats of paint, I can still the spackle outlines.

I dont know what to do at this point?

Another problem encountered was some places the paper bubbled.

What is the solution to getting rid of those bubbles in the paper. I dont think they were there before I started painting.

1-Do I sand the wall smooth with the paint already applied and paint again?

2-Just leave it and live with it?

Please help!
