I have just bought a 80 year old home. In the bathroom, I have marlite panels. Does anyone have any suggestions on removal , or painting or papering of these panels?

I would be happy to help you with your marlite dilema. First, congratulations for purchasing a home that uses marlite in its interior construction! Should you wish further insights into the marvels of this wonder product please feel free to contact me at In the mean times, I would strongly suggest not trying to paint or paper your marlite. Have you ever considered trying to restore the marlite to its original luster? I am willing to travel to your area and inspect your marlite. However, if you insist on changes to your current marlite I would suugest you use a medium grade sandpaper to "rough-up" the a fine grade can also use a non-acetone nail polish remover to further de-gloss the surface. Any good paint store can provide you with the appropriate primer and paint. I suggest a paint with a non-midew additive...especially for bathroom area.
By the way you big geek, why don't you just pull that crap off the wall and welcome yourself to the 21st century? Love, Karen and Stacey )
