Red face wallpapering over textured paint

In effort to finally update my family room (had dark 1970's wood panelling), I have primed the panel and decided to paint a textured paint. (I used a green tinted sand texture paint from Valgra) I absolutely hate it and have decided to wallpaper instead. How can I wall paper over the wall with the textured paint? Also, do I have to worry about stains (possibly oil on the panel) coming through a vinyl wallpaper as they have come through both the primer and the textured paint?

Thanks for your information.

cyg, Might try shaving the sand with a sharp drywall knife, the bigger the better. If that doesn't get it you may want to wet the surface and try scraping. When smooth enough to suit you use an oil primer like KILZ Original to hold back oils.....Mike
