Removing Wallpaper Over Tile
Has anyone wallpapered over tile? What do you put over tile to smooth it out? I'd sure like to know so I find something besides a box knife to clean the tiles.
We bought a 1910 farmhouse with good bones and some unfortunate remodeling by the PO. While my husband travels for work, I think of projects. So he's gone and I found tile backsplash under wallpaper in the kitchen! It's a geometric pattern of 1" square tiles (red or pink), 1/4" square tiles (black, grey, white or tan) or and 1/2" by 1/4" rectangles in white, tan, or buff). They all have faux marble streaks and some have gold mirror like flecks. I can't decide if I like it or not, but since the wallpaper is mostly gone I am committed now. The wallpaper was one of 3 different patterns in the kitchen anyway so now we are down to 2 unique patterns.
What era would produce a style like this? It doesn't seem original but I am not an expert so any ideas?
