I just bought a new house and in one of the rooms, it had been faux painted with a glaze, and now it's also been painted over with a solid color (eggshell or satin). And now some of the paint is peeling and it can easily be removed from the wall. By the way, it's also a textured wall.

Anybody have an idea of what I can do to fix it? I know I can strip all the paint and texture and take it all the way back to square one, but any other ideas?

If I TSP the walls now, will it remove enough of the loose paint to allow me to paint it the right way?

Will a paint stripper work for just the EGGSHELL or SATIN paint that is on top of the FAUX paint?

If you use paint remover it will remove all the paint not just the last coat.

The problem most likely is that they applied a latex eggshell without priming the faux finish which is usually an oil based finish. The most practical way to go is to sand and scrape the loose paint off (TSP will work for this)and then prime with an oil based primer and then finish with the latex finish paint of your choice.
