wallpaper

So we are trying to get this old house looking a bit more up to date.
We have a lot of wallpaper in this house- some of it is ok but most is ugly!

here are some pictures:
the kitchen~ not too bad:


the spare bedroom: livable for now:


Our bathroom- easy to peal off- working on it


Guest bathroom- they even papered the mirror! and pink cupboards! needs to be redone


the hall way:



So we trying to remove the wallpaper and its difficult! i think they put a layer of drywall stuff or something behind the wallpaper making it hard to remove.



If you have any suggestions let me know!

We had a lot of stubborn wallpaper in our house too. I would rip off the top layer (or as much as I could!), then soak whatever was left with water. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so and then get out the trowel (or something with a long, flat edge) and start scraping!
