Had to peel the entire bathroom


It was determined the cause of peeling paint was due to the previous owners never using a primer and multiple layers of paint. It was also suggested by some folks at home depot to totally peel the bathroom and start fresh with joint compound, texture, primer then new paint (in that order)The paint peeled right down to the drywall leaving brown paper. Can anyone offer any tips, suggestions? Thanks.

Forget the texture

Remove as much as possible without damaging drywall.
Apply a coat of Gardz
Skip coat where necessary, sand, clean, prime and paint

Debbie, I think Chrisn meant to "skim" coat where necessary. Other than that, that's the ticket.

You can texture, that's just some inside joking. You obviously live in an area of the country where texture is popular. There are some here who don't, it's a regional thing.
