I would like to know how I can remove a Ralph Lauren Faux Leather wall covering applied by the previous owners. Sand or a skim ? what works best. Has anyone tried and what advice please.

I am thinking this is might be the Suede finish?

You might ask (or phone) a Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore store for advice.
I am guessing a good primer would cover and seal it, but they would probably know what has worked for others. I recall when people were using it after it first came out, 10 years or so ago? Very nice soft look, but so delicate with scuffs and scratches. Plus the application led to a lot of sore arms.
