So I moved into our house and the lady before me had faux finished the walls. I used latex paint and painted over everything. Ah, a fresh coat of paint.... NOPE! Well, she had painted over wallpaper and now its wrinkled in the corners and there are seams everywhere. Any suggestions other than taking it all down? It's everywhere, kitchen, breakfast area, living room and formal living room. I've thought of Venetian plaster but it just seems like it will continue to make it heavy. I need help!
Rent wall-paper steamers to remove the wall paper. Unfortunately, the latex paint will make it harder. You need to find a way to allow the steam to penetrate the latex. Use a scraper to scrape the paint, but not through the paper, so you don't damage the underlying wall surface. I've used rasps, cheese graters, etc. Just be careful you don't damage the walls too much!
