The top layer is easy to rip off. It leaves the papery glue part behind. Then there is a system of spray, wait, steam, peel that gets us down to the gross nastiness that is the adhesive residue. That gets steamed again and scraped with a biscuit cutter. Yes, a biscuit cutter. Desperate times.
I've patched all my scrapes, dings, and holes with wall compound and I have a wee bit more to sand before applying the primer and paint. Having a million additional things to do on my list today, I will be satisfied if I can get the primer on but I'd be tickled pink to get the paint on, too. At this point, the one yellow wall (Sherwin Williams Anjou Pear) is more of a distraction than an encouragement. In order to paint the other walls, I will have to stop staring at this one!
