Friday Tidbits

It’s goooone!

You guys, the kitchen wallpaper is finally gone. Can you believe it? I barely do!

Let’s jog your memory with a Before:

As well as a different angle:

AND BOOM!

My dear friend Tai came out for a visit and spent her hard earned vacation scraping wallpaper with me. I don’t deserve her!

It took us three days since we were working around naps and sightseeing. It would have taken me a century to do by myself!

Helpful tools:

  • Spray bottle for water
  • metal putty knives
  • rags to soak up the excess water
  • and this gadget MamaP lent me moons ago:

This tool gently scores the wallpaper so the water can soak in and loosen the glue. It sped up the project considerably. I have textured walls so I wasn’t too worked up over any scratches it may cause and I plan to sand down the walls before painting anyway.

More After pictures? Ok then.

So much better, right?

One last shot:

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Tai! You rock my face off. Happy Friday!

  1. Good work Tai and thecandace! Plan something to do when I visit. I am not much help, but I am a great encourager (if that is a word). Looks great. Keep up the good work. lv mamap
