A couple sizes of plastic and metal drywall knives, wallpaper remover chemical and either a squirt bottle or a pump sprayer. Its important that the spayer can shoot a mist.

You could try to just scrap it off too.

Either way, your going to have to do some mudding.

That's about right.  

 

I have 25 year old wallpaper in my house, and I'm going to clean it real good, float the seams, texture it, and paint it.  To hell with pulling it all down.  I tried that in one room (or my wife did while I wasn't home) and it pulled all the paper off the sheetrock.  Talk about a mess trying to patch, float and texture.

I have used a couple of these tips with some success. The scoring tool and release agent is the key.

I used a razor blade to help peel the top skin off. Then I used fabric softener mixed with hot water in a spray bottle to wet the paper and glue, let it soak and scrape it off........Peppers idea is the only second best I know. 

 

I did my old house and some in my new house......get the face peeled off and use the fabric softener and hot water to loosen it all......if the sheetrock was not painted before it was put on your screwed...wall paper is evil that had to be invented by a woman.

Yep, used a scoring tool and release spray on a wall while converting an old building into a school.

A steamer works as well as anything I've ever seen . An I only watched a paper hanger do it a couple of times in MY life !...

 

http://www6.homedepo...B150/index.html

 

An if any of you should have an issue with Drywall , take note it's easy to prep even if on peels the paper off the drywall .

 

Solution simply SEAL the drywall with Two coats of this and then paint or whatever you're going too do over it .

 

 I kid you not this chit works wonders ,it acts as an adhesive for paint , while blocking out nearly whatever it's put over !.

 

FYI : I DON'T endorse products I don't use ...

Use a tool called a Paper Tiger that scores the paper without damaging the dry wall. Saturate with DIF and/or a mixture of vinegar and  hot water with a dash of dish detergent. Use as hot water as you can tolerate! In new construction typically the walls are not adequately painted and sized prior to paper application. If this is the case you will be skim coating and sanding once the paper is removed. Thank God that wallpaper is not as popular these days. It has presented me with heartaches over the years. It is the only job that I will not bid, time and materials only.

This is a common shortcut in new construction that is an absolute curse to the future home owner! Prior to papering the wall should be primed with a wallpaper primer such as Porters Blankit or a similar product and then sizing should be applied.

Luckily mine got messed up in the Hurricane of 2005 when we got some leakage in the living room. The Insurance paid for it. I did not envy the contracter........Now that wall is painted.

Looks like these guys got you covered.
I used the little scoring wheel thing from lowes then the hot water and fabric softener and also tried their gel spray. Took some time but I got it all and didn't have to Remud the wall.


Good luck

Most of the wallpaper is gone now. Have to do some cleanup on what is left of the glue then a lot of skimming. Seems there was also some drywall damage under some of the paneling. Gonna get that taken care of. Hopefully will be painting by the end of the weekend,

Red : Next week You can spruce up the ceilings :segrin: . My Drywall Man used to do some fantastic scallop designs , fans , star burst and decorative faux plaster details in some of My high end building days . I had the perfect drywall crew ,  seriously  they did Excellent work at very reasonable   cost and were some of the quickest hangers tapers in the business . Little Mike was the talent at 5'5" and Big Mike at 7' 2" needed NO stilts or horses and Don well he kept it all together . I miss them fellas ,as do several other contractors I'm sure . Everyone has either gotten Old or Died !. I ran into little Mike's younger brother yesterday and his daughter graduated from College 4 years ago !. Damn where does the time go , anyway made me think of Little Mike !.

Srgt. Hulka ; Little Mike used to do a row of half scallops close too the edge of a ceiling and then larger ones in near perfectly straight lines until the entire ceiling was done . An I swear people used to think it was stamped when completed . He had the hand eye coordination and could match anyone's texture .

 

I built a 7700 Sq Ft. house for a couple and their 4 year old daughter back in the mid 70's and Mike did Giraffes Elephants Zebras Lions  even some Hyenas   all over her walls in her bedroom . An her mother hand painted them , She was very talented in her own right .  I helped ( I cut straw for the mud mixture  big help ha ha ) as the rest of the interior was heavy Santa Fe stucco effect ...
