If I could meet the inventor of wallpaper glue, I would wrap my hands around his throat and squeeze.......HARD. When I started this project I thought it would take less than a day to get the wallpaper off and prep the wall and then another part of a day to paint. Yeah, what a moron!
It's almost the end of day 2 and there is still some wallpaper on the wall. It was even hard to get the top part off, let alone the glued part. You know how it feels when you grab a corner, pull, and a huge big strip comes off all at once. Well, that did not happen ONE TIME. Not one time! It's coming off in little crappy pieces.
I did take a break this afternoon because I wanted to try the test pot of paint I got to test the color. I did one corner so I can put the China cabinet in place tomorrow. I love the color. This is just one coat
It's perfect! Tomorrow I hope to have the rest of the paper removed. I learned that wallpaper is not only a (b-word) to get off, it also hides a multitude of sins. I found a couple of holes but I expertly filled them with filler. I felt so handy!
In other house news, I had a nice surprise this morning. My Mom's cousin, the plumber arrived with a brand new submersible sump pump and installed it. And while he was here he noticed my washer hose which I had "fixed" with wire and duct tape. After he stopped laughing, he fixed that too.
Ok, enough rest time, I think I have another hour of peeling left in me
