Papering Over Styrofoam That's Been Stuck Around Chimney Breast

Postby sunflower148 » Mon Aug 18, 2014 11:22 am

I am in the process of stripping wallpaper from walls and have found that the previous owners have for some reason attached thin sheets of styrofoam to the chimney breast and then papered over. I have already bought 'paste to wall' wallpaper and would like to know if this will stick to the foam without me having to remove it all. Thanks for any advice.
