I learned to hate wallpaper when I, too, was scraping it off my kitchen walls. And I think the film of grease that goes on it from years of cooking serves as a special bonding agent and preservative. I swear the wallpaper and accompanying paste could have survived the atom bomb.

Wallpaper should be outlawed, especially pseudo-Laura-Ashley wallpaper. Ours was, I guess, supposed to look charmingly floral, in a red, assertive and anally repetitive kind of way. Instead it looked like a swarm of red insects always poised to sting. Hated it. Why I waited till we moved to rip it down I'll never know....

Ha! I did the same thing - lived with horrendous painted over dirty peeling wallpaper for years and only did something about it when I moved out. So now some new tenant can come in and trash my freshly painted walls..
