I recently decided to tackle a project of remodeling my spare bedroom.
By remodeling I mean slapping a fresh coat of paint on the wall and
replacing the carpet. The bedroom has this hideous textured ballerina
wall paper on it. The other day I wanted to get a feel for how
difficult it was going to be to remove the wall paper so I quickly
pulled at a loose piece of the wallpaper. The end result is that not
only did I manage to pull off the wallpaper but I also managed to peel
off a 2foot section of the drywall. Is there anything I can do to
repair the drywall? I really don't want to cut out the damage piece and
replace it. Silly me I should have followed one of the many techniques
for removing wallpaper correctly.
If I were you I would leave it right now and continue taking off the
wallpaper. Because if you run into the same situation, you then might
want to consider your options such as putting new drywall up. Otherwise
if the rest of the wallpaper comes off OK, leave the drywall repair for
last because you are surely going to use joint compound in the room to
cover some nailholes, minor cracks, etc. This way you can do everything
in one shot. Good luck.
If it also took off some of the drywall and not just the paper. Then it sounds
like you had some damage to the drywall thats why it did that.
I would agree with what Mikepier recommened.
