With the weather in the upper 80’s for the past week or so I’ve been going back and forth between two projects: updating the linen closet upstairs and working on pottery down in the basement. Most mornings I start upstairs until things heat up, and then it’s down to the basement I go.
The good news is… Yesterday I finally finished the painting the linen closet. Hot dog, I’m glad that project is over with!
Removing wallpaper, it’s right up there with going to the dentist if you ask me. It was not a fun task WHATSOEVER, that’s for sure.
At one point, I was even using tweezers to peel the teeny tiny bits of paper of the wall.
And then I remembered someone on the blog mentioned awhile back to use spray bottle with warm water in it… and while I couldn’t find a spray bottle, rubbing a wet washcloth over the wallpaper worked like a charm.
Why I didn’t try that sooner, I don’t know. In the end though, I was able to remove all the wallpaper so that’s all the matters, right?
Light and bright…. just the way this minimalist likes it. 🙂
Life is so much easier when your cupboards and drawers are clean and aren’t filled with a bunch of junk.
Oh what a difference a little white paint makes.
Now, who wants to come over and help me peel the wallpaper off the walls in the next closet? 😉
Peace Out Girl Scouts. Have a good one, I’m off to water the garden.
