The bathroom wall will get primed with Kilz 2 times before any paint ever touches it. I did this in another room in the past and it worked great since I could not get all the glue residual off. The wall was nice and smooth to paint after Kilz.

Kilz oil I hope.

Whoa, this is getting way blown out of proportion. There is no "nightmare" - people do butt joints on drywall installed the right way all day long.

There is no problem here. A coat of Gardz would be great, but if you're using flat paint, a couple coats of that would look fine too.

Hugh? You are suggesting skipping a primer/sealer? Over potentially lingering wallpaper paste?

No, I might have missed the context along the way here. I was talking about plain drywall paper.

Is you're own astute words, read the post, they were talking about the backside of drywall.
Not sure what "is you're own astute words" means, but yes I'm aware we're talking about the backside of drywall. Now why exactly would making joints on the backside of drywall be a "nightmare"? There are no tapered edges, but why would it be any worse than doing any regular butt joint?

Uh, Jeff, have you ever finished the backside of OLD drywall? The old drywall from the 50's and 60's had a very coarse backing made up of the thick brown paper, and, yes, it would be a nightmare to try and finish it properly. Sure it could be done, but with much more effort than doing the front side.

Not really relevant here. Did you read what the OP wrote? "The house was build in 1986 so this should not have been done this way, drywall then was the same as now white on the side facing the room."
