Come on Down!

We’ve started the process of removing all the remaining wallpaper in our house. Before I post any afters or how-tos, I just want to show you what I’ve been looking at for 2 whole years. I don’t know why we didn’t get a wallpaper steamer before.

Embossed wallpaper
Small Bedroom

I don’t really hate the small bedroom wallpaper, but it is badly stained and damaged in many areas.  I don’t think we will have a very hard time getting it down either since it’s already peeling.

Woven wallpaper
Large Guest Room – Thanks, 1970’s!

Again, I don’t hate the texture but some cats got to it and used the walls as a scratching post. It is severely frayed in many areas and has some water stains under the window.

Really stained with nicotine
Master Bedroom

This is the wallpaper in my room. It is really stained by nicotine and looks very yellow in person. It’s also a little frilly for my taste. I can’t wait for some nice clean walls.

Do you have wallpaper in your house? Love it or hate it? Tips for removal?

Projects in the Pipeline

I am not sure how many times I’ve mentioned this, but I am reminded during every waking hour I’m in my home that it is a complete and utter disaster in almost all facets. However, being my father’s daughter, I’m constantly brainstorming and working on remedying it.

Right now I have these projects in progress:

  1. Tray project
  2. Lamp makeover
  3. Bathroom reno

If I were to make a list of all my To-Do projects this post would never end but my high priority projects are these:

  1. Bar makeover
  2. New flooring (whole house)
  3. My entire master bedroom (the whole thing needs love, desperately)

As I look around my house, there is no place I find that doesn’t need some kind of help.  Thank God for handy aunts, Ikea, Pinterest, and blogging.
