Well, my week of vacation is quickly coming to an end, and I’ve finished everything I could wall-paper removal-wise... Laundry room, kitchen, front bedroom, bathroom and living room wall-paper is all gone now, and all that is left is my bedroom (which is the least heinous of all I have found) and some bits that need to be cleaned up around light fixtures and electrical outlets – things I didn’t want water from the steamer dripping into.
So… the great unveil of what’s underneath?
Kitchen – before & after:
|BLACK AND WHITE FLOWERS - everywhere... sigh|
|Hey - that looks like another window! |
I may be doing more construction than I thought!
|OK, the pink ISN'T better - but at least it's down to the bottom layer!|
Laundry room – before & after:
|No more blue flowers...|
Front bedroom – before & after:
|Not one, but two different kinds of flowered paper...|
|AND... it's really close to what I'm thinking of painting it anyhow!|
Some WAY better, some not so much – but that’s what a good thick primer and light toned paint colour are for, right?
Next up? Some Feng Shui updates…
With love across the waters,
