Question removing wall paper

I just removed the wall paper in my guest bathroom, it left a yellowish paper residue and holes from the scoring. Im not sure what to do next, my goal is to eventually paint it. It looks like the builders just put wall paper on the drywall without texturing the wall first...Help, please...

You have 3 choices:
A) replace sheetrock (the right way)
B) skim coat you entire wall and sand (it never looks quite right)
C) texturize you wall (simple and easy)

texturizing can take away you problem and make the room look more interesting. My house have been through several sets of kids and wall paper, so most of my walls are now texturized. But, if you have to have a flat wall, your best bet is to replace the sheetrock. It is almost impossible to get the fuzzy surface (paper removed from sheetrock) to be smooth again.
