    Default Fix all the walls damaged by wallpaper

    My home I aquired is an old farm house that has no less than 10 layers of wallpaper on most walls. I tried getting it off but it is not possable to make the walls straight. Please tell me if there is a type of pannelling or thin sheeting that can go over all the walls and then paint or paper

    Yes. you can get 3/8" sheet rock and cover over your walls. Try and find the stud pattern and nail it to them. Also, use a panel adhesive on the back to ensure a firm wall. The switches and recepticles will need to be adjusted out 3/8" but you could get an electrician to do it if you're uncomfortable doing it. Then you can put any type of finish you like over it. Good luck.

    You can also get 1/4" drywall but it might have to be special ordered.
