we painted my daughters room pink about 15mo. ago now i noticed that they were peeling. today I was in there and noticed we painted on wallpaper and i peeled asd much of at the seams as I could. on two walls there are no seams and I cant get the wall paper off. So now I am trying to get the paint off the wall. I've been scraping for what seems like hours. I am tried, is there an easier way? if so please help

I don't know of a way to get just the paint off the walls. I would just get what wallpaper is loose off and then prime those areas with an oil based stain killer and then apply drywall mud to the bad areas to smooth them out and then prime the repaired areas with a layex primer and apply your finish paint.

I think that you would be best off if all the paper were removed.

A tool called a "Paper Tiger" is needed.

it pricks tiny holes & allows water to penetrate the glue, & loosen the paper.

A steamer may be needed, but try hot water in a garden sprayer first. Allow to soak, & respray again before scraping.
