Burlap wallpaper and painting!
I have burlap wallpaper in my family room, painted on by the previous owner (30-40 yrs ago). I removed 2 large strips with and without DIF and exposed the cardboard-like paper of the drywall, so decided not to remove it, even though I want smooth walls.
I have bought "Cherry Cobbler Red" paint and grey primer, have 48 sqr ft of damaged drywall and the rest covered with off-white painted on wallpaper.
How do I make this room look good :(
