I will never have wallpaper in my house ever again. As much as I really, really liked the nice folks we bought the house from, if I ran into either of them today, I might take a notion to strangle them. (just kidding, of course). But, they sure did love the wallpaper.
I've never hung wallpaper, but don't you suppose that's a more difficult task than, say, painting? What's wrong with painting, people?!?!
The Evil Twin and I have quite a task ahead as we desperately strip wallpaper in the basement. Then, we need to get all those surfaces painted before August 7th, which is when our new carpet is being installed.
On one particularly fun wall, the paper was adhered to just the bare (unprepped) drywall. It's going to take some sanding and patching to make that bitch look halfway decent. Perhaps we will go with the sponge technique on that one to try to minimize flaws. Sheesh.
Well, I must get back to work. I left the Evil Twin by himself while I came upstairs to grab a couple of quick sips of vino and to cool off for a bit. Time to get to it and pull my weight.
