    I'm in the process of removing wallpaper from the living room so we can re-wallpaper. Doing so, I've discovered a 1-2cm line running horizontally along the wall, about 1/4 of the way down - does anyone know what this could be?

    Possibly where a picture rail or plate shelf had been fitted in the past.

    Definitely some kind of dado rail if picture rail is the proper term for it. Either paper back over or replaster the wall
