Curious to see what you do with the unadorned beige...what a project, stripping wallpaper. We once stripped off 3 layers in our old house, including a lovely gold flocked number...and no it did not come of in sheets, but confetti like yours.

Your posts always make me smile. It is good to know that you have had the worst part now (especially with your wallpapering skills).


Thank for sharing some scenes from the hood. Beautiful! I'd love seeing your 4 legged neighbors everyday, too. I don't even mind smelling them. Maybe I should stop revealing so much about myself now.


Man you are energetic? I've got a border in a bathroom I've been "stripping" since last summer - want to come over to my house (LOL). Can't wait to see what you do - we got dumped on this past weekend to but heh its still Feb in these here parts...J

You have such great taste I can't help myself at being excited to see your mad wallpapering skills. Hurry up!

Beautiful barns and neighborhood! Seriously can't wait to see what you do with the walls, this is going to be good!

Can't wait to see what you do! Your neighborhood is lovely.

Lovely photos as always. Our last house had so many layers of wallpaper in the living/dining room (11 that we could count!) that we finally asked the neighbors about it. Turns out the previous homeowner worked for a wallpaper company. "Ahhhh, now we get it."


I love those red barns...are we going the red route in our redo?? Can't wait to find out!


Nothing like a good redo...I have a stack of clothes I wear with paint all over them already...you know for those days I feel energetic enough to take on the task of painting. Good luck...Renee


This post could have been written about me. I learned to wallpaper from my mother, who learned from her father... It took me YEARS to afford to wallpaper every room in my house and yes, I struggled through a closet with nine foot ceilings and my face next to the lightbulb. And now I am sick of all the wallpaper and thinking of going back to paint. Go figure!


I HIGHLY recommend uisng a product called 'Chomp' to strip the paper. It's MAGIC, I swear. I did our 8x6 bathroom in less than 2 hours.
Good luck! Can't wait to see the finished project.
