wallpaper is the devil.
correction: bad wallpaper is the devil.
it took me all friggin weekend to tear all of it down in just the dining room.
friday night i worked on some blog things (including a scarf tutorial)
i then headed into the big city (woodland mall) and met my friend lisa at the macys sale and then to dinner. dinner after she introduced me to the store lush. i know i know i never went to one before! i’m hooked! i bought a few of their bath bombs and an awesome sea mist spray for your face. it’s life changing.
saturday morning i woke up bright and early went to home depot and grocery store.
i came back and got to work peeling down the wallpaper
the next 12 hours went something like this.
i peeled wallpaper
i took down more wallpaper.
there was a chinese food break and one more home depot run in there. i worked for about 12 hours saturday.
sunday morning i woke up early again. had a cup of coffee and peeled more wallpaper down (for about 2 hours)
i headed to church to watch a friends bambino get baptized and then to her house for lunch. i was so excited to have a lunch that wasn’t from a take out box or cereal bowl.
i ran to the byron center house (yep still own it) and grabbed a few more things, home depot to grab yet more supplies and then to meijer to pick up some real food for dinner.
i peeled more wallpaper for about 2 hours project hour count 15 hours.
we washed all the walls with tsp and joe put a first layer of paint on the ceiling. we called it quits around 8pm and had our first home cooked meal in the new house (i had to dig out my cooking supplies) we had roasted brussel sprouts and potatoes with a truffled parmesan sprinkle and grilled pork tenderloins. we watched happy gilmore and called it a night.
