Hi and welcome to my side project.
A little over 6 moths ago, my family and I purchased a new home, new to us that is. Built in the late 80's, the interior reflected that awesome decade. Being something of a handy man, the home was a perfect purchase. I had done most of the renovations in our last home and was really looking forward to this project. So this week is spring break and school is out, so I am home with my teen and decided to work on the
living room. So with everything stowed in the dinning room I set about recording my progress.
As you can see lots of wall paper to strip and lots of popcorn ceiling to scrape
So without further ado I got to work. 8:30 am Monday. I started by emptying the room and then I had to make trip to the hardware store, can't think of a better way to start the day.
I got rosin paper, all new outlets, switches and covers. A couple gallons of paint, some tape roller covers and wall paper remover. And some lunch. Before I started the messy process I covered the floor with the rosin paper. Seemed like the right thing to do. 11:30 am started in this corner.
Fun Facts: Wall Paper first gained popularity in Renaissance Europe by the Gentry as a alternative to costly tapestries. Many depicted scenes similar to tapestries.They used hand painting, woodblock printing and stenciling to create the patterns
Be it known that I hate wall paper. Never been a fan. One good thing here is that the walls were properly prepped for paper so the removal is just mostly messy.
Day 2 to come.
