Brandon asked 6 years ago

Our house had wallpaper in the entryway that had been painted over. When we tried to take it off it peeled the top layer of paper off of the sheetrock so that now there is only a thin brown paper layer over the sheetrock core.

Question: Can I sand, prime, texture, and paint this without too many problems or would it be better to just replace the drywall?
