I am in the process of painting my bathroom,
the wall just above the shower needs to be repaired before applying the paint. It is peeling very badly.

What is the easiest and best way to prepare this wall for painting.

Thanks

Your paint is peeling,from moisture caused by shower's.Do you have a ceiling exhaust fan?If so use it or it will do the same thing again,this paint should be able to be sanded or lightly scrapped off.
After you get the paint off lightly sand your wall to give it a nice etch for your primer to stick to.
Seeing as how latex is water based,I would go with an oil primer and oil paint.
This should work for you,ALSO.....MAKE SURE that when you do this no showers have been taken that day or rest of the day afterwards.
This will get moisture in your exposed drywall,and trap it in and will rot it from the inside out.
