Wallpaper on drywall

In reply to REMOVING WALLPAPER by BONITA KIRBY on April 12th, 2002 12:21 PM [Go to top of thread]

Has anyone come up with a solution for this?
My paper was peeling at the seams, so I decided to remove it and paint the walls. Unfortunately, whatever paint was used to prime the walls stuck to the paper instead of the drywall! I used the paper tiger with DIF and peeled about three sheets, and it was a nightmare. Some of the paint peeled with the wallpaper, and some of it stuck to the drywall with the wallpaper backing stuck on top of it. I tried to re-DIF and scrap to no avail. Right now I have a half drywall/half paint and peeling backing wall. Any assistance or thoughts are greatly appreciated. HELP>>>>>>>>
