Yes I am going to restore the whole house and I finally figured out how to get it off. I am using a hair dryer and then when it's just getting easy enough to peal away from the wood I use Windex with vinegar. Spray it really good and wait about 30 minutes and then with my putty knife it peals of like magic.
I know what you are talking about with the multitools, but after I walked away from the dollhouse and then came back to it was when I though of the hair dryer. As far a multitools my husband is going to buy me a Dremel for my birthday. It has all those attachments and will help to restore my dollhouse with out all the frustration of try to get into corners or narrow places with sandpaper.
Well I finally figured it out. I have been using a hairdryer to loosen the glue and when it's just about to peal back I use Windex with vinegar. I give it a really good spraying and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then using a putty knife it comes off like a wrapper on a stick of butter.
No not steam. I used a hair dryer to loosen the paper and glue and then of all thing I used Windex with vinegar and it's coming of really easy.
I used warm water and white vinegar and let it set for a bit and then I still had to use a putty knife to scrap it off. Took me 2 hours to do one ceiling. There has to bean easier way to do this unpleasant task.
