    Morning all

    We are decorating a downstairs room. I removed the old wallpaper which just pulled off in full sheets

    It has left patches of old paint behind in places and others it is down to bare plaster.

    Do I need to remove all the old paint or just the edges that are flaky?

    I will be getting someone in to repaper with anaglypta.

    Thanks for your help. 20201012_194306.jpg 20201012_194325.jpg

    No the old paint is fine where it is , just remove any loose or flaking paint, the decorator will finish off prepping the wall anyway

    That rad needs to come off though.....
