Can I paint this wall?
My wife and I just bought our first home. The wall was covered in a torn wall paper mosaic. This paper came off super easily. We are left with a mostly clean wall but it seems too simple. The white covering is peeled off in places exposing another layer that seems to be the actual drywall / base material of the wall. We want to paint. Is it ok to paint that top white layer or is that wallpaper backing? If so should we go all the way down to that lower level? I spent too long searching and now I don’t trust myself.
