Over the weekend I scrubbed the house and put up the tree (to the left, to the left, doesn’t it look great!?). I promised myself I would not start a new project yet, but I had a spare hour on Sunday between church and my mom’s apartment Christmas party. So I donned the disposable coveralls, disposable face mask, and started stripping wallpaper from what will be my library. I know, it’s an obsession!
This room is the twin to the living room, and I will simply be stripping wallpaper, painting the walls and trim in the same colors as the living room, and polishing the floors. You can see the before photos here. I may need to purchase some furniture for this one. Aside from that, this room should not cost me anything additional. I’ll go through the steps with you here, though.
I will be using the coveralls, the knee pads (when I go over each parquet square, the sticky pads really save my middle-age knees!), our Purdy rollers and Merit Pro paint brushes (still going strong!), and disposable gloves for painting.
