We're moving into our new place in the New Year, its not our forever home but we'd like it to look nice for the couple of years that we'll be there.
We we are going to painting the living room but have noticed that the lining paper at the top of the wall as very slightly coming away at the joins - maybe by a couple of millimetres on some of the joins. Its a bit of a pain in the neck as we were just planning on giving the room a quick lick of paint
So wise MNers , should we take off the lining paper before painting?
We have no idea what might be underneath the lining paper and fear we may be opening a proverbial can of worms!
just asked DP who is a Painter and he said stick it back if you can, if not trim it back to where it is still stuck down and then fill with finishing plaster before painting. (Finishing plaster is easier to sand)
