My husband and I just did this within the last month. It was terrible. My three pieces of advice--1)Water and vinegar. 2) A very good, sharp putty knife. 3) A very good sense of humor and strong liquor.

You won't get everything off. You can try, but you will drive yourself insane. The only part we had problems getting it off of was near the ceiling. We decided to throw up some crown molding. Problem solved.

I have said it before and I will keep on saying it as long as I am alive.
If the paper was PROPERLY applied, it can be removed easily. It is only when it is IMPROPERLY installed that it becomes a problem.
