I doubt if anyone is going to part with good money to watch this special event. Fortunately I'm bringing it to you for free!
A few weeks ago we decided it was finally time to redecorate the dining room. As we prepared to get started it looked like this:
We were reasonably confident that we would be able to strip the wallpaper and paint in a reasonably short length of time.
Of course we hadn't reckoned on this happening as we tried to remove the well-glued wallpaper from the wall-made-of-paper:
Yes, the brown patches are where the paper on the drywall panels peeled away with the wallpaper on half of one wall (and in a few other patches) resulting in some anguish, fevered web searches and some cursing of American building methods.
Fortunately, after finishing the stripping and applying a coat of primer I discovered that I am a dab-hand with joint-compound (a.k.a. mud) and the goes-on-pink dries-white stuff that I chose was a big hit with the kids - it looks quite striking - especially in the tub.
We finished the painting last night and this morning we put the room back together.
Time for a contented sigh of relief.
