Bathroom - Part I

Once I finished my sewing room, it was time to tackle the wallpaper in the bathroom.  I was hoping it would come off as easy as it did in the spare bedroom and the kitchen.  No such luck!  The paper wouldn't peel off in big pieces so after the first ten minutes I knew I had to run to the store and get a scorer.  That worked much better, but it was still a very time-consuming process.  All of the seams had extra glue (not a paste) behind them so there was a lot of time spent on scraping that off too. 

After 27 hours of peeling and scraping and sore muscles, it was finally off!

The paste needed to be wiped off the walls so after another couple of hours that was finished too.

Stay tuned for Part II.

Just taking that wallpaper down makes a world of difference, doesn't it? I'll bet your room looks twice as big!
