What, y'all thought I gave up? Spent a portion of Thanksgiving break sucking up leaves...
Then the snow hit, and it got COLD.
Then we had a poop-load of people over for Thanksgiving dinner...
And the day after Thanksgiving, my wife decided to enlist everyone that
stuck around in ripping the dining room to shreds. Something along
That left me to the simple task of peeling the wallpaper strip off the ceiling, cause, you know, I'm the tall one.
I scraped, I rolled, I sprayed, I sanded, I tired everything under the
sun and that stuff DID NOT want to come off... Finally what ended up
working sorta okay was the iron- yup, I spent the first three hours
trying things out, and the last 2 hours holding that iron over my head
while standing on a ladder, heating the strip up and scraping it off an
inch at a time. Barf.
Moving on. Starting to look pretty good! One problem- never ask an "artist" to help you "paint".
Alas, it was in an awkward spot and had that green showing from behind so it got painted over.
Some of the help.
