    After watching this video I started removing the wallpaper in my dining room. I have this exact setup with the paper and the backing. Following your steps made it easy. I still have the Kitchen, bathroom and two

    I'm a beginner with no experience. I would really like to renovate my bedroom by myself. You make it seem so easy, thank you for the advise! 🙂

    Thank you so much for teaching me your techniques!  Unfortunately I took a tiger to one wall before I started and am greatly regretting it.  I will use what you taught me on the other 3 walls!  I almost went to rent a steamer but will follow your tips instead!

    Hi Russ, have you ever run into a job where previous owners removed top coat of wall paper and then left the paper underneath and then painted over that paper?  If you have, is there a way that you know of to get to the dry wall?  You can't wet down the paper because of the paint over it.  Any suggestions??

    Doing something the second time is always way, way easier. After watching you videos doing it for the first time yesterday felt like I had done it before! Thanks so much for sharing what you know. You were looking over my shoulder the whole way.

    What a nasty job removing that backing. I think I would quote high for a job like that. There has to be a better way. Why not put your thinking cap on and invent something. Or maybe I will:-)

    how many times do you spray down the under paper if you spray the top layer 3 times. Also I have read a lot about adding fabric softener to the water, what do you think of that? Did you score the paper first?

    Omg! Thank you so much. . I was seriously stressing about what to do. I did the job barely half way and stopped, because I had no idea what I was doing. But now I do. ! You are so awesome. 🙂

    This video is extremely helpful showing the step by step. I like that you didn't just start and cut to the finished result. I used a steamer to remove wallpaper and it's backing from my bathroom walls, pulling and scraping like you showed. But the amount of glue that was placed under the top border was ridiculous and applied to the drywall. My "quick" weekend project has turned into a nightmare because of this.  Thank you for explaining how to handle the glue!

    This is the same method I use to pull off pieces of skin when I get sunburned.
