So it seems I have having some difficulty winding down since my extra work is done. I thought I would just relax and veg out for a few weeks. It's been the opposite. I have been just going nuts with project after project. I cleaned the siding on the house, painted window frames, dug out all the flower beds and added new topsoil, purged and organized the garage and basement, reorganized the closets and drawers, rearranged my bedroom.........you get the picture. Ugh!!
I'm definitely in winter nesting mode. I've been watching all those home improvement shows and getting the urge to do something to the house again. One room I haven't really done anything to is the living room, where I spend most of my time. So I used some of my extra pay to buy a new small electric fireplace for this room. I think it will make it cozier. Here's a pic, it should arrive in a week or two
I mentioned to a friend that I was contemplating re- doing the living room. They convinced me to wait until after the holidays. I didn't need another big project right now.
Well......I don't know what happened this afternoon. I just lost my mind and started ripping off wallpaper.
So there is no turning back now! So I have to ask you......what kind of IDIOT tears apart their only entertaining room a mere few weeks before the holidays?? Honestly I don't know what I was thinking. Perhaps I was thinking I'm sick of looking at this drywall patch for the last 2 years
Yes, I said 2 years........sigh
This wallpaper is a pain in the ass to even get the top paper layer off. It won't come off in nice big strips, just little scraps. I'll borrow my neighbors steamer on the weekend and finish. Then I know I'll have to fix lots of sections of the walls before I can even apply the primer. This was a really stupid idea.
