removing layered wallpaper that was painted over

Posted by Angele on January 21st, 2000 03:23 PM

My husband and I recently bought our first home, which is an older one. We want to repaint all of the walls in each bedroom, but found there are two layers of wallpaper with a top coat of flat paint. How the heck are we going to get all that stuff off without damaging the drywall?

In the bathroom, they vinyl wallpapered over paint and when removing the paper only parts of the paint came off as well. How can I make the drywall smooth without damaging it and leaving a nice finish to paint over it. I appreciate any advice.
