We have a 1940's bungalow that had cheap wood paneling in three rooms. We painted one room and decided to remove the paneling in other two rooms that had plaster behind them. We tore it down, removed all nails and scraped the chunks of glue off, leaving behind the stains from the glue strips. We then textured the walls, primed the walls and used 3 coats of good quality paint. It was fine for about 6 months until the glue stripes started to show through, even through the olive paint in one room. How do we go about getting these stains covered up permanently without putting up sheet rock?
When you primed, did you use a primer that prevents or covers stains? I would try repainting my wall with a special primer that helps to prevent new stains, and covers old ones. Also, talk to a painter or the paint department at your local home improvement store. They may have some solutions you had not thought of yet.
Re-prime with Kilz, then repaint
