We're doing far too many projects around the house and one of them was to get rid of the ugly paneling on one wall of our foyer. It was, I think, original to the house, installed in the 1960s. We thought it was just paneling and planned to tear it off and put up sheetrock, but lo and behold, the paneling was glued to the wall.
Our walls were all painted with old flat paint that had been mixed with sand, so it is very rough and can't get wet. So does anyone know of any way to get the glue off the wall? Because as you can see, it really has to come off: http://prancer.zoints.com/album/view/Foyer-88261
Just ignore the messy kitchen in the background .
Home improvement sucks.
