I’ve been living with this 1970s wallpaper since I bought my house in 2007. Last week, as the first phase of our kitchen remodel, we finally tackled it.
The wallpaper was thin cardboard that was glued to the wall. The only way to remove it was to replace the wall. So we textured over the top to flatten the wall and painted.
Of course, that meant living for a week with the dining room in this state.
Words cannot express what a relief it is to not look at that wallpaper anymore!
