Wallpaper on Wood Surface

I want to put up a photo mural on a wood surface behind a set of french doors. What do I have to do to the wood before pasting the mural?

If the wood has a noticeable grained surface or is grooved like paneling, you will want to use a bridging liner. This is a blank wallpaper designed to smooth surfaces for either painting or wallpapering over. You can get this at home improvement stores. Once this is done, you can put the mural over it. If the wood is smooth and in good shape, you will want to prime the surface prior to the application of the mural.

Mural on Wood

Thanks for the help. The wood is the smooth backside of beadboard paneling. The grooved side will be facing the backside of the tv cabinet. When you say prime it, do you mean paint primer? Should I also use vinyl-acrylic sizing?

Size isn't needed unless the manufacturer of the mural specifies it. The primers you should use should be an acrylic designed for wallpaper. Several companies make them, you can visit our links page for examples.
