Well, it happened, the wallpaper came
Four days and four bags of wallpaper
later. I tried to get "before's" and
"after's" but I think I missed some but
you'll get the idea.
As most of you know this paper was here
when we moved in. Not my choice by far.
Now some will say "Melinda, why didn't
you do this years ago?" and I would say
"I didn't think it would be as easy as it
was." Plus I had no idea how many
layers there would be.
I got ahead of myself here. I did get
everything off the wall though.
After on the wall above. Look closely on
the bottom left and you will see my
Before and after.
It was EVERYWHERE! We have "T"
hall off our kitchen. This hall was added
on to the house when they added the
Saturday and the last of it is coming

paper off. So glad to have my helper on
As you can tell by the last pic...this it

What a job! I've put wallpaper up and taken it down, and I would MUCH rather cut and paste to hang it. In the 80s, my mom and I wallpapered our houses like crazy people. Then, my brother bought my parent's house and my poor sister-in-law had the job of taking it all down. (We sold our house and left the job to the new owners). Can't wait to see what color you choose. What a difference it will make!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that the paper I did not pick is GONE!Delete

Girl, that's a job!!!! My kids keep bugging me to take down the wallpaper that is on the bottom half of our steps and hall. Nope!!! I know that there are a few layers of paper and ... nope. hahaha. Great job. I can't wait to see what you are going to do. It's definitely brighter already. I'm about to give new blogger some practice. I can't seem to add photos where I want them.ReplyDelete
Have a great day.
I don't like the new interface. Makes pics to big and I when I used the larger font it messed with my text.
Practice I guess. Good Luck.

I took down all of my wallpaper this winter as part of a modernizing effort. I also painted every room in the house and hubby painted the popcorn ceilings. What a job!ReplyDelete
Congrats. I know what an effort that was.
Wow that was an undertaking for sure.Delete
