Question

I bought some horrible shelving paper the other day and it absolutely refuses to stick (there was paper there before that held fine so I can't figure out the problem)... What should I use to paste it down that won't create a bubbly or uneven looking surface? Stupid question perhaps, but it's really got me
I was somewhat thinking of just throwing a layer of paint over the shelf and sticking the paper to that and seeing if it would dry on. ..???

Use rubber cement. The paper will stick but the cement is easily removed in the future.

Wipe the surface with a mild degloss product known as liquid sandpaper. This should remove the old contact glue without damaging the surface. This allow the paper to lay completely flat without a high build glue beneath which may give it a wave look.
