Well once we got all the wallpaper steamed from the walls there still was the nasty residue which needed to be cleaned off. I spent several days with the TSP and a scrubby washing every inch of the walls and ceiling so we would have a nice clean plaster finish coat to work on. We then had a few holes that really needed repair.
We also made a few interesting discoveries. We could now see the walls originally had picture rail that had been removed and in the alcove outside corners there had been wood corner protectors. Both of which will be replaced as we continue work.
