    Question Sheet rock paper peeled off

    A friend of mine peeled off the sheet rock protective paper on the kitchen walls, thinking it was wall paper. What can she do to fix this and get it ready for paint?

    What are we talking about, a fuzzy brown papered wall, or bare gypsum?

    Fuzzy paper can be coated with primer, then floated out with topping compound. Bare gypsum will require tearing out the drywall and installing new.

    Water based primers can make the paper bubble more and more.

    First coat it with Zinsser Guardz then prime and paint......
