How to take off the tapestry of wallpaper that has been painted... from above. I will try to sand the coat of paint with a hand sander, with a coarse grained emery cloth to scratch the surface of paint and then soak the tapestry with boiling water to pull it off more easily. What do you think? Do you have another solution?
No need to sand the paint as it will leave with your wallpaper when you take off. Follow the tips of our DIY sheet 'PAINTED PAPER TAKEOVER' to carry out this operation successfully. simply scratch the paper with a big wire brush, without breaking the wall!
For convenience you can rent a wallpaper stripper that will greatly simplify your task.
