I put the finishing touches on these little owls more than a week ago. (Pattern found here. Thanks, Jessica.) Since then NOTHING crafty has been going on. This makes me feel a little owly. It seems that all my time has been consumed by stripping wallpaper and washing wallpaper paste off the walls. Rip. Spray. Scrape. Spray. Scrub. Wipe. Spray. Scrub. Wipe. Rinse. Wipe. Move over. Repeat. Gag!!! I think I would rather poke needles in my eyes than remove wallpaper. I have told my family that if I suggest that we put wallpaper on anything ever again, they are to take me out in the back yard, beat me, and then see how I feel about that wallpaper.
I probably shouldn't be complaining. This wallpaper removal is part of a major kitchen renovation. I have been looking forward to a kitchen redo since we moved into this house twelve years ago. But...come on...Rip. Spray. Scrape. Spray. Scrub...UGH! The good news? I think I am done with wallpaper eradication. Tomorrow I get to start priming and painting the walls. I like painting better than wallpaper removal, but just by a little bit. I must remember to keep my eye on the prize. It's a good one!
