I have a rental that I'm working on right now. It had peeling wallpaper in both bathrooms (golly, who would have guessed wallpaper in a steamy environment would have trouble?), the entry way, and one wall each in two bedrooms. I don't know what happened, but all the wallpaper also ripped off badly. As in, the paper backing the wallpaper separated from the "face" of the wallpaper. Now I have several walls glued with fuzzy brown paper. It's going to take a full day of scraping (combined with steam, a sponge with hot water, and at last resort that disgusting chemical spray) to get this shit off. Oh, and the rental is ~130 miles from my house, so I have to pack some overnight shit when I go there later this week. I know I could probably get away with just painting over the fuzzy brown paper, but that's just passing on the trouble that I was handed. I'm going to do this fucking right if it kills me. But who the fuck puts up wallpaper anyway? It's not any quicker or easier than painting, given the need to line up the paper just right. If you fuck up removing it, you can easily end up having to replace the fucking drywall, which is a monumental pain in the ass. If you just decide you don't like it anymore, you have to remove it. Paint. If you don't like the color of your paint, paint over it. The only time you'll need to replace the wall if you paint it is if something actually goes wrong with the wall, rather than you fucking up replacing the cosmetic cover on the wall. At least I finally bit the bullet and bought myself a professional paint spray system. That should save some effort. I hope.
