Answer for What are my options when chipping lead paint is found under wallpaper?

When on a budget the best option is to seal off the work area (plastic from ceiling to floor) to minimize dust getting into other areas, while wearing proper protection (dust mask and disposable clothing) crape off all loose paint then prime to seal the walls.  Now repair the cracks and paint as usual. 
Make sure to clean up well to remove any trace of lead dust from the room.
You can attached new drywall panels to your walls as an alternative but this is more expensive and time consuming.
