stripping old walls
Posted in the Ask This Old House Forum

We have an old victorian era house and have embarked on stripping off old wallpaper which had been painted over in the 1970s
Underneath the wallpaper we found two layers of sticky painted plaster - which is very difficult to shift. It is a sort of pink colour with a dark red gungey glue underneath.
Can you recommend a way of removing this stuff? We have used a steam stripper before with good results but nothing is shifting this stuff.
