Motivation struck just this past weekend and I decided I would tackle the Laura Ashley border that goes around the room at TWO levels. What a mess.... this border did not come with the handy self adhesive, it required PASTE to apply. It seems to me Laura Ashley had some major plans to not go down without a fight b/c this is hard as heck to remove.
I lightly scored the area with one of those rolly scoring tools, spray Dif on it, wait 20 minutes and then go up to have at it. This freaking paper is coming off in square inch sections and leaving the paper backing behind for fun. I am done 1/8 of the room and almost a whole bottle of Dif. (not sure if the company is public or not but I suggest you buy some stock, I'll be buying it by the case)
teeny tiny scraps of paper tortuously coming off. I look like a paper mache project gone horribly wrong as I am covered with tiny bits of sticky paper. At this pace I predict I will be finished approximately in 2016.
Does anyone have any good wallpaper removal tips? Your paper mache friend here is all ears :) xo, Brie
