The wallpaper removal project of 2008 is turning out to be my very least project I've ever done. This is including the wallpaper removal project of 1998 that my mom and I tackled in the rental house Matthew and I first lived in. In that project we removed four layers of wallpaper and had to teach ourselves how to hang, mud and tape drywall. Matthew was working on his senior project and was unable to join us in the fun we had with that fiasco.
I've really not progressed any. I've tried everything and have reached my last option. I'm begging my dear husband to surprise me with a steamer. I was not originally going to use this idea as I wanted to be as kind to the drywall as possible. Ha! If you could see the the state the drywall is now in you'd understand that, at this point, I DON'T CARE. I just want the stinking wallpaper down and gone forever.
In the meantime I've chosen the paint color for the entryway. Sherwin Williams' Camelback. Also, I've finally chosen the green color for Anna's walls, Crayola's kid room paint in Little Leaf. I was going to wait to choose colors as a treat for getting the entryway paint ready, however, I needed a little pick me up.
I'm hoping Matthew picked up on the hint I gave him.... I was completely subtle.
I simply said, "Matthew, you'd score big time points if you bought, rented or ripped-off a wall steamer so I can take the ridiculous mess off the entryway walls."
