And so it begins...

I have peeled all the wallpaper.
Let me remind you what that looked like...

It's hard to see in this pic...but it's a scalloped flowr border that goes up about 18 inches from the floor.
So after 2 bottles of DIF I got that stuff off.
Tonight I started on the trim work ( Hubby is at the movies)
and got one coat on as far as I could reach.

Tomorrow two girls are coming to help me and that will be fun to have somebody to work with.

We took all of the furniture out of her room today and let me just say how shocked I am at how much stuff was under her bed and behind her dresser. I'm talking just trash and random things.
Crazy crazy stuff.
Also she has an extremely ugly lanolium floor that was so nasty in some places.
I wish we where getting carpet put in, but alas, the budget will not allow it right now.
So I will settle for cleaning the area rug that I have really really good with Resolve carpet cleaner.

I have a lot on my mind right now. Sigh. I hope to be able to do something with the things on my mind over this next week. Sometimes being a contemplative person annoys even myself.

Well, it's midnight and hopefully Stacy will be home from the movies any minute now to compliment me for my wonderful paint job.

Good night peeps :)

I hear ya about the being a contemplative person. It gets olllllld sometimes. It's like you just want to tell your brain "STOP THINKING ABOUT STUFF SO MUCH!"

Em & Sabriel had horrendous linoleum flooring in their room too. Shaun just laid Pergo (ie fake wood flooring) on top of it, and it looks FABULOUS. He got it at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store, and it was only a couple of bucks per square foot. Maybe that's something you could do? I think their room was only around $50 to do. (If my math is right, which it probably isn't.) Just a thought!
