STRIPPING, STRIPPING AND MORE STRIPPING

....WALLPAPER that is...
GOOD gravy. Wallpaper needs to be outlawed!!!
I still do not quite see light at the end of the tunnel yet. Although we have 3 rooms primed and ready to paint. We are finishing up the wallpaper tear down. I think at this point I am going to have to completely finish one room just to have a sense of accomplishment. We still have about half or more of boxes still not emptied. Slow wins the race right?
Cheers!

I do not envy you right now! Wallpaper is outlawed in my house. It's beautiful, but a pain when you want to redecorate.

You sound like you are making progress to me! And yes, wallpaper is very evil....I'm still peeling the itty bitty remainders that are on a bathroom wall.....an UNprimed bathroom wall....WHO puts wallpaper over UNprimed Texturized walls??!! In a windowless bathroom???!!! I have the paint and everything to lather the walls in....just as soon as I finish tediously picking and peeling the last bits up (its taking forever!). I wish you WAY more success with your walls!! :>

Oh boy...I don't envy you there at ALL. I did that ONCE and that was enough for me. What a pain! We JUST finished finally moving everything from the old house and we are done. Talk about a sense of accomplishment...LOL

Hey Julie - sorry I haven't been by in a while, it's been so crazy, but after reading up on what you've been up to, I am glad to know I'm not the only one who has been busy moving things around :) Enjoy making your new home yours - it's beautiful and can't wait to see the end result.
