I bought my condo almost 6 years ago and have lived with this horrible falling apart corkboard glued to the bedroom wall until just 2 weeks ago.My handyman Mike scraped it off. It's so nice to no longer see it! The glue is still there and doesn't absorb paint well, so even after 3 coats of white paint, you can still kinda see the patches of glue as a yellowish color. But I think primer or a darker color will fix that. Now I want to redecorate my room (in all my free time!).
