Home Improvements -- Welcome to Hell

As promised, here are some photos of the wallpaper removal project.

I don't have any before pics with the room fully intact. The rug and remaining furniture disappeared, thanks to my husband and brother, before I remembered to get the camera.

This is the best before I've got.

Fugly layers of paper.


All that horrid paper is now gone. It took 2-1/2 twelve-hour days to make it so. Now I get to bag the mess and start washing walls. I'm glad I left the carpet pad down to protect the hardwood floor underneath. Scrubbing off old sticking paper from the floor would have been no fun at all. Once, is enough.

I must say Eclectic that the before picture looks a lot better than it actually was. It almost looks as if you were nuts to have tackled that job, but you and I both know better.
