We are stripping the wallpaper and repainting my daughter's room in our old 1890's house.
The paper came of the plaster walls easy enough but they must have used some industrial-strength space age adhesive on the ceiling because no amount of scoring, soaking, peeling or scraping is bringing that stuff down anytime soon.
The options I have gleaned are to A) glue and screw 1/4" drywall over the paper, effectively creating a new ceiling, or B) skim coat and texture the ceiling with plaster.
Has anyone tried either? Pros or Cons of either approach?
