Not For the Faint of Heart

The painter is coming in the morning, and I'm just now getting to removing the wallpaper border from this guest room.  Yes, it should have been completed weeks ago, but every time he canceled, I secretly believed it was to buy me a little more time for this process.  Well, time is up.  I'm a bit tired, the bed is calling my name, but I must complete this project.


The good thing is that it's only a border.  The bad thing is that it's cheap border so remnants of the paper backside are left behind, which means more clean up.

In a perfect world, I'd remove this carpet and get hardwood floors or at least laminate.

This is my manifesto:  THERE WILL BE NO WALLPAPER IN MY HOME FROM THIS DAY FORWARD.


Seriously, no matter how gorgeous they are.  No matter how loaded my Pinterest-feed is.  No more wallpaper. 

That is all.

  1. Oh this brings back memories for me. My first place has wallpaper border in a few rooms. It was a nightmare to remove! I am with you, no more wallpaper! I bet the room looks gorgeous now.

  2. Wallpaper nowadays is drystrippable and much easier to remove... Old stuff is HORRIBLE. I had one house where wallpaper was applied on drywall with no primer or paint applied first. I had to replace the drywall. Hope your room re-do is quick and easy from this day forward :)

  3. Here you are, promising you won't have wallpaper in your house anymore and I secretly hoping that I'll be able to have it on mine someday. Believe me, no matter how difficult to remove may be any full wallpaper or border, having popcorn painting on your walls is much worse! It's called 'gotelé' in Spanish and you can find it almost everywhere as it's durable —but I'm so tired of it!
