I am contemplating removing a chair rail so that I may paint a bedroom. I am afraid that if I do so hastily and without instructions on how to proceed, I will end up repairing the holes in my plaster walls as well!!!

Any advice on the easiest way to go about this?

Thank you in advance.

I was just wondering why you wouldn't tape it off and trim it in?

The bedroom is quite small and already has trim at the top of the walls which gives the room a "cluttered" look. Also, I have a beautiful mirror that I would like to hang over the vanity in there, but the chair rail would be in the way.

But thanks for all of your help!!!!!

So I take that you are not reinstalling this then?I thought that you were just removing to paint around it.if you are taking it off to get rid of it then this is a different story.

Use a small cats-paw with a board on the wall to pry it off the board is to brace the cats-paw on so you dont damage the wall.
