It sounds like you are set on wallpaper...it can be done. There is a product you can buy to line your walls before you paper...it is like a wall paper felt...it helps with blemishes, and makes sure the new paper will stick. Now you can also put a thin coat of wallpaper paste on your wall too...over the paper felt. Then when you paper..it will have fresh paste on the piece you hang ..so you will be putting fresh paste over dry thinned out paste on your wall...makes for better holding. Just take your time, and don't worry about the bumps...as long as you get the paper to stick you got it made. Also by the time you hang a few pictures or shelves, wreaths..people will look at that before they will see a bump. Plaster walls are a part of history and I love the sturdy feeling they give a home...I feel they keep a home cooler in summer and I love that.
Enjoy your farmhouse...I miss mine.
