Seriously?

As much as I have bitched and moaned and complained about removing wallpaper from every square inch of our home since February, I will take it all back. Removing wallpaper from old plaster has been a breeze compared to the nightmare of removing wallpaper from drywall that was not primed. The sadly comical part of this is that it the last bit of wall in the downstairs hallway (see pictures in previous posts). I could almost taste the sweetness of being done and wham! whatever.

Oh I am so sorry. I have experienced the pure hellish torture of removing wallpaper from unprimed drywall (right along with a good portion of the unprimed drywall of course...) as well. I truly admire your determination.

We're right there with you. It was actually easier for us to remove the drywall and replace it. Granted -- there were other issues, too, but we weren't disappointed in having to get rid of the rest of the wallpaper that way!

I agree with Windy. Easier to remove old drywall and replace it.

If you ever run into this again, the Wallwik stuff worked great. No damage to the drywall and a very paintable surface now. Thanks for the empathy though!
