Tear it Down!

 I think I've mentioned before how much I HATED the super icky wallpaper that was up on the walls. Halloween night I packed up all the decorations & got to work peeling the first layer of wallpaper off.

It looked 100% better. Then it was time to take off the second layer.

Dean showed me how to wet down the walls and then I went to work.

I spent the better part of 5 hours peeling paper off of this tiny entryway. Look how yellow it was!

The end results were so worth it though. Now its ready to scrape the ceilings, remove that hideous light fixture, add can lights, rip up old flooring & add in new flooring, replace the trim & paint the door & walls. We have also discussed adding an arch to make the entryway look a little more finished. So much to do in such a tiny space but it will look amazing when we are done. 

I've been working on a few other projects & can't wait to share them with you tomorrow!
