What next

I recently resheetrocked my kitchen span. I have rolled on some PVA sealing primer 72 hours ago. I will be wallpapering this span. Should I apply sizing over the PVA? Apply paint first? Another type of primer? Please enlighten. Thanks.

If you have good coverage, the color looks all the same, you should be set if this is supposed to be primer for wallpaper. You might check the label to be sure.

That is what I am wondering. Is PVA primer good for wallpaper? Or should I roll on another primer, topcoat?

I wouldn't use PVA as a wallcovering primer. Use a primer specially formulated for wallpaper such as Benjamin Moore's Wallgrip 3 or something similar. PVA primer can and will re-wet under vinyl which will cause either failure of the primer as in paper popping off or allowing the adhesive to soak in the wallboard making removal at a later date next to impossible.
