After 2 very long days of working to remove that 8’ x 8’ area of really stubborn wallpaper, it’s finally off! Gone! I should have just rented a wallpaper steamer to start with but I kept thinking it wasn’t worth it for such a small area….I didn’t have that much more to do…etc. Ha! Live and learn.
So I went from this mess…
…to this. It looks better already with just a coat of primer on it!
I’m off to Lowe’s today to buy the paint. Can’t wait to show you what color I finally decided on (after much waffling back and forth).
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 44 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 35.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
