We've decided to re-do the inside of our master walk in closet. I will attach a picture, but the wood appears to be caulked and then painted over.
Not all of the shelves will be going. Just looking for some advice on how difficult this might be and how to get started.
Here's another picture from the other side
You cut the seam with a utility knife. Not hard to do. You would do that if there was just paint there also as it can peel back.
Thank you. You make it sound easier than I had thought it would be!
it looks like an older home so be prepared for several layers of paint! are you removing the side pieces as well? there might be hidden nails or scr*ws aside from the ones shown...i'm betting on nails...This message has been edited. Last edited by: sjf,
House is 11 yrs. We will have some work to do because where we live, they texture all the walls!
In these days, Best products are there to remove the paint on the nails and becomes our work easy.

Hard for me to say without seeing it, but I would expect to cut the caulk or paint and then use a flat prybar to remove wood supports. It really shouldn't be difficult.
Your greatest challenge will be repairing the texture, and aerosol spray texture from a store will work.
I doubt the OP is waiting for a reply. A spammer resurrected this post to post a link. The original post is 11 months old.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
