Hi guys I need some DIY help if possible.
I've just moved into a 30 year old house and me and the GF have started to strip the walls down to redecorate. Underneath 2 layers of wallpaper and a layer of lining paper we have got down to the original plastered walls that have a light coating of emulsion. We want to wallpaper 1 wall per room and paint the rest so want to get right back to the plaster before repainting.
My old man has done a fair bit of decorating in his time and he recommended we get all the paint off before repainting as any water based paint will just make the old emulsion bubble and flake. I've started scraping the wall with a wallpaper scraper and I am getting through it but it's taking such a long time. Here's a pic:
I'm sure there must be an easier, faster way to do this?
Does anyone know whether there is a specific type of paint stripper that can be used on plastered walls?
