Here is the offending wallpaper:
It was so cute back in 1992...
While it IS true (in my bathroom, at least) that warm water and a sponge are all you need to take wallpaper down, it took too long for me. So Brandon and I went out and bought a wallpaper scorer and the removal solvent, as well as a couple of scrapers. That worked faster, but it was still a pain. For my walls, the paper removal process consisted of these steps:
Step 1. Somehow remove the actual floral wallpaper from 1992.
Step 2. Now remove the backing that you left behind when you only ripped off the facing of the wallpaper.
Step 3. Now go back and find the glue that is left on the walls.
Step 4. Hide the gianormous holes you tore into the drywall from Brandon and your mother.
Step 5. With too many to hide, ask Brandon or your mother to fix the gianormous holes you tore into the drywall.
So as of last night, ALL the offending wallpaper, its backing, and its glue are gone! The walls have been sanded (!) and wiped down(!!), and we are ready to prime, baby!
