Drywall issues

I removed some fake tile board from bathroom walls. The boards were put on over top of wallpaper with liquid nail and when I pulled the boards off it removed both the wallpaper and the first layer of paper on the drywall. Can I put a skim coat on what is left? Or what is the best way to fix this mess? I want to paint the walls.

Drywall issues

your only choice may be to skim the walls if you are dealing with a lot of trim, etc...it depends on the damage also, to get a new look 1/4" drywall over the existing walls would be ideal but you may not be able to if you have trim and other issues to work around.
