preperation to paint after wall/ P removed


one would think after all these years ( 71 ) I would know do this.
Well ! I do but looking for an easer way out of a lot of extra work.
I just removed one layer of wall paper some came off with the primer paint
still clinging to the paper,exposing the orig. old beige paint , some paper just the printed surface come off leaving the backing still stuck on the wall.

Now this is where it gets tricky the areas where the white primer is still on the wall about 1/3 on entire room, has two problems, some areas the primer is on solid. I believe I can paint over this, then in other areas the primer is peeling off ? then in some areas I can use a scraper and scrape off the white primer (( but )) this is hard to do it kind of chips off.

MY plan unless I'm told this is not a good solution is to hang plastic wash the walls twice with tsp.
Next use my hand sander to feather the good solid paint to the orig. beige paint.
Then go to a Real paint store and purchase reliable primer.
paint two good coats.
Three walls is on very old wet plaster / one wall is dry wall with nicks in the paper.
I'm sure I can repair all the bad areas before priming.

If you had experance and this is not the best course please advise.
today is Friday I plan on starting on Monday
Thanks

just test the old paint for lead prior to attempting any sanding.

And put a coat of Zinsser Gardz on after sanding and before your skimcoat repairs, then prime again at least over the repairs. That'll bind everything down so you shouldn't have any future peeling problems.

Make sure all of your paper and glue is off, wash the walls with tsp, rinse well, apply a coat of fast drying oil primer SW, skim coat as needed, prime areas that you repaired, sponge sand the walls(med sponge) ,apply 2 coats of. 100% acrylic paint.

Thanks .
I have washed all the glue off very well. I plan on washing a second time
but I rather not use TSP this second time because the paint store guy said TSP can affect the paint's adherence, he said to rinse it three times..
someone said to use vinegar and water as a rinse.. Also.
I like the idea to paint before the repairs are done and repaint after the material has dried 24 hrs.
