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.

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.....
