My wife and I painted our bathrool with Latex Paint. The paint started to peel so we found out it must have been an oil base underneath. To fix the problem we peele all of the paint, but in the process all previous layers of paint also peeled off in some places. Also, some of the paper on the drywall is exposed now from peeling everything off.

Where do we go from here. Do we go straight to retexturing. The old style was an orange peel and we want to stick to that. What supplies do we need.
We are worried that we have to first spackle the exposed drywall, and then re tecture before we paint.

Anyway, we really need advice on what needs to be done before we paint.

First you will need to scrape and sand to remove loose paint and to smooth the edges of the peeled areas down. Then you will need to spot prime the peeled areas with an oil based primer as this help to seal and lock down the coatings there now. Now you will need to spackle the low areas to even the wall out as it will show through your texture. You can buy an orange peel texture in a spray can which is good for doing small areas. To be safe I would prime the entire bathroom with an oil based primer and finish with an acrylic bathroom paint as they have mildecides built in and are designed to take the moisture.
Hope this helps out.
