Hello all In my new house the previous owner had painted over the wallpaper, which i must say looked quite nice. However, to tidy it up a little bit i went over it with another coat. Damn room started stinking like hell, and that was almost 2 weeks ago. I cant get rid of the aweful smell. One of the mysteries im faced with is why it started to smell so badly in the first place and why it wont go away? So im thinking that if i cant get rid of the smell, then the wallpaper will have to come down instead and the bare wall be painted on. If i have to go down that route whats the best way to remove painted wallpaper and the wallpaper paste thats going to be left behind? Ideally, id like to remove just the smell, but i honestly cant see where iv gone wrong. many thanks for your help.
