I have peeled wallpaper from my bathroom walls. I would like to paint the walls. What I have is a fuzzy-like wall with partial backing to the wall paper. In places the sheetrock(drywall?) is peeled at various levels. Do I sand this? Sand or no sand, then should I use some kind of primer on the drywall and if so what kind?

SassyMo, The ideal way to prep this would be to get the rest of the backing off using stripper and if it will not don't tear the walls attempting. An oil primer like KILZ Original would best but could get by with KILZ Total One, KILZ II or Zinsser 123(all latex versions) if no yellowing or bleeding. At this point patch as smooth as you want and spot prime the patches with the same primer you used earlier. Now paint it......Mike
