We purchased a home knowing it was going to be a "fixer-upper", but one thing the previous owners did has us totally stumped. On half the wall (the lower half), they shellacked newspaper comic strips to the walls and I have no earthly idea how to remove this. I have tried scraping at it with a paint sc****r and have made a few passes in it, but mostly I'm digging into the walls. They are plaster walls to boot, so I'm in a mess here. Any ideas?? HELP!!!!
