Hi, Just new to here. I have tried to take off the textured wall paint different ways... sanding is a mess, so I saw on a site that I could just spray it with water...
I did do that and within minutes it scraped off.. I was left with the old white ceiling I had before. Now someone is telling me that I am going to take the wallboard off... it doesn't look like that to me, it is a smooth white paint finish underneath. Doesn't wallboard look brownish if you scraped the top off>
Please anyone have any ideas, before I do more? Thanks
It sounds like your doing fine. You will need to lightly sand whatever is left and prime with something to grip into what might be a dusty residue.
It also would be normal to ahve to do a bit of skim coating to get it smooth again- but if you prime with a primer/sealer and look at it with a light you will know.
