Other than the pink bedroom the one thing I never really liked was the wallpaper in the master bedroom. It looked like this.
I would have never, ever picked that but I really didn't want to take it down so we just added some complimentary decor-artwork, towels, etc that made it more tolerable. But after 5 years I decided it was time to take down the wallpaper and repaint. We picked the colors, had a plan and since I have plenty of time right now, I decided to get started.
That's when I discovered Phase 1 would be in two parts-there was wallpaper under the wallpaper. And it's pretty hideous. Fortunately I started in the smaller area of the bathroom and plan to finish that completely before starting in the big room. That way I won't have the whole bathroom torn apart at one time and if I can practice my sponge painting in the less noticeable areas!
I remember one old farmhouse we lived in when I was little had six layers of wallpaper, each more hideous than the one before it.
Have you checked to see if there is another layer under the roses?
Been there, done that, feel your pain. Wallpaper is evil.
I agree with tervnmal, wallpaper is evil. I once took wallpaper off of PLASTER in the house I'd grown up in...I was close to 30, half way down the layers I found my writing on the wall, literally. I wrote my brothers name, I guess I thought he would get in trouble for it even though he was like grown and married? LOL
