A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

sneak peak

Let the renovation begin.....

I'm happy to say we have officially begun the task. 
Friday I spent a better part of the day organizing, sorting photo's,
 and going through all my "stamping" stuff. 
By evening the floor was cleared 
It was beginning to show some promise  :)

and then...
The wallpaper border from HE - -
It just didn't want to come off
after lots of soaking and scraping and sweat it was a done deal.
Never again will I apply wallpaper to any wall in my house


  1. I swore off wallpaper and borders years ago....like 28 years ago :) I do know that if it is applied correctly, it comes off easier.
    But I'm a paint girl :)

  2. Good start! Sorry the wallpaper is so stubborn. I vowed the same thing 2 years ago when I removed mine.

    I hope you find a good place for your stamps so you can play again!

  3. I supposidly did apply it correctly, I just think wallpaper isn't meant to come off once it's on :) That's my take on it. Never again will I have to removed the dreaded stuff.

  4. Your on a roll. keep it up.

  5. Great job on getting it off. We have used a steamer, and it works like a charm in getting paper off. I can't wait to see what you're going to do with the room!
