I don’t know what you see when you look at this picture, but I see an hour and a half’s worth of work and some very shriveled fingers.
Yes, I “started” the wallpaper removal in our powder room last night (using the hot water method), and this is where I stopped. Seriously, I thought everyone was exaggerating when they said how bad taking down wallpaper was. We’re having company in a couple of days, and I kind of thought I might just pop into our powder room for a few hours and peel all of it off in big, pretty sheets. Yeah, not happening.
It also occurred to me while I was up on the ladder scrubbing and picking that I really had no idea what I was going to do in our powder room once all of the paper was actually off the wall. I think I’m leaning toward dark and moody. (If you can’t be moody in a powder room, then where can you be?) Well, no worries. I have plenty of time to figure it out.
Have you painted a really dark color in a small, dark room with no natural light?
If I get really ambitious today, I’m taking a three-year-old and two babies to buy a steamer. That should be even more fun than the wallpaper removal itself.
