    wallpaper coming off on another job.. didn't take it all off this time, most of the first layer stayed put.  It was pulling massive amounts of wallboard paper off.. it was some seriously brittle paper, think vinyl with some type of SOLID glue.  Sucked to mess with, and was rigid when I pulled it off.  So I took the first layer off and didn't get all the second layer off.  Oil primed it and went my way for the day.  Tomorrow is skimming the seams and spots I did get it off, sanding the whole thing, and painting with a flat paint of their choice.  What a nightmare this paper stripping is.  I will make it look great, but this stuff sucks.  Pics to follow.
