The first room I want to tackle was the office. I work from home a lot so this is the center of my universe much of the time. This room was disgusting. I think it was a child’s bedroom at some point, and the level of dirt makes me sick.
To start with, my friend Karen came over to help me remove wallpaper. We used a mixture of water in vinegar in spray bottles. The paper is the really old “real” wallpaper, which is easier to get off than modern paper, but still takes time. There were a few layers, so that slowed things down a lot. Needless to say, Karen and I did not finish in one day. It took me a week to get all the paper off, including the layers on the ceiling. Yes, the ceiling, who does that?
Anyway, the paper is removed, next will be painting!
