Wallpaper Party

I'm removing some wallpaper from our den (that's TV room for you Northerners). It's been interesting so far. I've made quite a bit of progress.

I have loads of nervous energy and I need to be doing something. Something with my hands seems good right now. And, it's also in the vein of furthering an idea. IOW, I'm doing something that will help us do something more.... know what I mean? It's kind of like progress, I guess you could say.

I think I can have both walls finished by this weekend. We know a guy who is an excellent painter and did some painting for me at my parents' house - he's also an old friend, so I'm sure he'll be able to work us in soon.

Really, only two walls are papered, the third needs just paint and the fourth is paneling which is getting a bead board overhaul and then painted to match the rest of the room.

I'm taking a small break right now and waiting for the paper to loosen so I can do more peeling. It's kinda fun - like peeling a sunburn. I get excited when I get really long/large strips off at once. A way to entertain myself and work off my nerves.

Anyone want to come help me peel paper? Free wine.


  1. I will if you'll come here and help me take it off my kitchen and back hallway. Make it beer, though, because wine puts me to sleep!

  2. If you had me down there doing that job you would have more whine than you'd know what to do with!

  3. I don't mind jobs like that. Some good music and you can get pretty zen about it.

  4. Heck, I'd do it just to get out of the house for a while.

    No need to serve me wine; I will bring COFFEE.
