Two items that where popular 25 years ago are still found in many homes. Z brick and Mirror tiles where used on walls to create illusion but are now very dated. Here are a couple quick tips on removing them. Z brick can be removed with a 3” stiff putty knife. Slide it under the brick and twist. There is a good chance that the drywall beneath will need to be finished or replaced. You can also paint by using an interior water base primer and a final coat of satin water base latex enamel. Mirror tile is removed by going to the center of the tiled wall and cracking the middle mirror and then using the same putty knife as before. Piano wire will work to cut through the foam adhesive behind the mirror.
