The total wallpaper count is now up to 15.
Yup – another couple of spots where there was wallpaper under wallpaper. I have samples, so far, of 11 of them. I will be keeping samples of ALL of them, once off the walls…
I pulled off all of the checker board stuff in the kitchen – the stuff behind the stove peeled right off (I had just made tea) and so did the stuff that was being used as a “back splash” – but that was stuck onto the actual back splash – also made of the same green speckledy arborite as the counter – and peeled right off. The new finds include a blue grey with tiny white flowers:
|This is under the counter up against the walls...|
|This is in the kitchen, was under the black and white stuff over the doorway to the hall|
And the greeny-white stripey stuff under the other, most heinous stuff, in the bathroom:
I REALLY need to rent a steamer and get the darn stuff off ALL of the walls in one go… but I’m not up for going out today and I don’t think the tools rental place is open tomorrow. I could steam wallpaper while sick – the steam would be good for me, right?
The shelf paper – a beauteous green and white plaid pattern – was on one of the shelves in the kitchen cupboards:
And last, but not least, when I was puttering around and moving stuff from the fridge freezer to the chest freezer I saw this:
Which warranted additional investigation:
And finally showed this:
ACK! I should have left it alone!!!
With love across the waters,
