We’ve been working over at the new house and last night we had the joy of taking off wallpaper.
Have any of you done this?
If you haven’t…DON’T DO IT!
Wow! It is a lot of work and it’s not fun!
The first time we looked at the house, we were both just so excited about the thought of having our very own house that I didn’t even notice the hideous wallpaper border and lovely pastel lavender paint that covered the entire living room and dining room. See below.
Looks great huh?
And a little close-up, so you can get the full effect…
A very nice farm scene….
Okay, sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, but I wasn’t really thinking about grabbing my camera. I was in a hurry to get that hideous stuff off of the walls!
So as you can see, it’s quite the lovely border, but it just isn’t quite my style.
We did make some good progress and got one whole room removed, but man taking that stuff down stinks!
Tonight, we’ll continue the process and get the rest down, get everything taped, and hopefully Thursday we will start painting!
I am so excited that we are doing things to make this place OURS!
