Wallpaper Removal

Posted by Cheryl on October 18th, 1999 08:41 AM

I just moved into a rented condo. The wallpaper in the
bathroom is hideous! The realtor told me that I could
change it, at my own cost. I decided to strip the old
wallpaper, and paint the walls, until I could afford
the wallpaper that I wanted and the cost to have it
installed by a professional. I just spent the weekend
stripping the entire bathroom. Problem is, it seems to
have left the backing & adhesive still on the wall! I
bought a liquid stripper, that you apply & leave on for
15 mins before removing. It took me 2 hrs just to get
about 4 sq feet of what was left off the wall! My
question is, Can I just leave this backing & adhesive
from the old wallpaper on the wall & wallpaper over it,
and just forget about the painting? Or does the old
backing & adhesive need to be removed anyways? Boy has
this turned into the project from hell! I need all the
help I can get!! Thanks!
