Angry Removing sticky-backed border

Our new (used) home has a sticky-backed Pooh border in one of the bedrooms. How do I remove this from the wall? So far, I am removing it inch by inch! Thanks!

Someone mentioned an electric heat gun..I seem to remember that it worked well for them...Worth a try!!

From what you wrote, it sounds like you are talking about one of those self sticking borders similar to any common sticker. If this is true, I would go straight to the "redneck cure": WD-40. Get a good start on the border, and spray between the junction of the border/wall. Rub with your finger or paint brush. Spray, Rub, Peel, and repeat. Some also have excellent results with a heat gun, or more practical, a hair dryer. Heat and peel. Either method should work well for you.
