Paint over wallpaper. How to remedy?!
I recently moved into a house with many rooms that have a couple coats of paint over wallpaper. Needless to say, the walls look horrible.
I'm trying to figure out what to do. Should we labor day and night to try to get this stuff off the walls. I can only imagine the disaster under there (FYI the house is from 1963).
Does it make sense to leave the many coats of paint and wallpaper where they are and skim coat on top?
If I realize that this is all beyond my ability, will a professional painter charge me an arm and a leg to make my walls look smooth?
