    Hi thought we'd decorate the downstairs toilet and the previous owner had music note pages all stuck on one wall which initially looked nice & unique.

    After steaming off the pages and removing a mirror he'd put up using no nails and screws the wall's not looking too good.

    Where do i start???

    I've got a box of Toupret

    Sand Most of the wall down ?

    Just keep applying coats and build them up? You can see in the first picture that the paints just peeling back off.

    Is there a thicker undercoat i can buy?

    Or would i need this?

    bettz1, good evening.

    Can I suggest sanding with a "Pole Sander" using various grades of paper?

    Also suggest you consider using a very heavy grade of lining paper, easier than an attempted skim??

    Ken.
