>>I've never tried wallpaper over wood. Does that work well?

Only if the surface has a smooth finish, like urethane or some other treatment.

The adhesive used in wallpaper is designed to provide contact adhesion between two smooth surfaces. This is why borders don't don't work well in textured homes. It's not designed to bond to the porous surface like a contact cement.

Vinyl film is the same way designed for smooth surfaces.
