Hi, I done mine a few years ago and used silk paint that you use for the house, this worked well just painted over the paper on the walls, Only thing was that in the bedrooms the walls always felt a little sticky even though the paint way dry for a long time. So I decided to wallpaper.
The original paper on the boards just pulls off, if you get a knife and make a small hole in the paper then just peel off in strips, this leaves the backing on the board. You just buy wallpaper that you use in the house, (I would recommend a thick paper), I bought a tub of ready mixed paste from B and M bargins, this has anti mould in. Measure the paper on the wall then paste the back of the paper, leave a few minutes to soak in then put on the wall smooth off and trim ready for the next peace.
You can see some pictures on my web page www.haggerstoncastle.co.uk on the picture page.

Hope this helps a little
