    Hey Everyone,

    I move in to my new house next week. From the viewing I did it appears as if the previous owners have spray painted a pattern on the upper half of their bedroom wall.

    If this is indeed spray paint or an oil based paint, what would I need to do before I emulsion it (I am assuming that I can't paint over it as normal)? Do I need to use a special undercoat or primer and will this be available in your typical DIY store?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
