Regretting Taking off the Wallpaper and What is This?

Postby MikeDIY90 » Mon Apr 02, 2018 4:48 pm

Hi all,

My first attempt to do some decorating, so take it easy on me :)

I have been taking down the wallpaper in my spare room, which was randomly wallpapered on one side only. Now I know why! I've found some sort of material sticking out of the wall, looks like its been used either to patch a hole or maybe it's some sort of damp proofing? It doesn't feel like rock, but it is hard.

Does anyone know from the pictures what this is and what I should do to get rid of it? As it sticks out and is rough, I can't paint over it.
