How do you remove a faux brick wall. My mom about 35 years ago bought this kit and applied these 1/2' thick bricks to one of the walls in the kitchen. The adheasive she used was black and thick. She does not remember what she used. Well that wall takes forever to clean and collects cobwebs something fierce. And just between us its ugly! I was wondering if there was a way to remove it w/o tearing up the walls? I read other post where in the old days they used black asphalt adheasive to adhere floor tiles could this be what she used on the wall and how would I figure out what she used?
