What I've been up too......stripping

 Wallpaper stripping that is.....
 and let me tell you I wished it looked as pretty as these examples.....
 None the less, I have been so excited for the job, yes definitely 
grueling at times....some rooms had 3 layers.......
 but the extra money will be wonderful for our trip in exactly
21 days from while I'm breathing in years of yuck
I dream of Anthropologie air......
Now they have asked me to paint the rooms.....I have always worked 
with my hubby doing these I have my first solo gig!

So my big reveal and re-do will have to wait until
I finish this job...... its amazing what paint can do
these rooms look so different!

I should be done soon....
and I can't wait to catch up with all of you!

  22. There's nothing like wallpaper to enhance a room;
    and O by the way i love those different colored upholstered chairs, elegant and they look comfortable!

  23. I've not seen wall paper on doors before - you seem to have loads of wall paper every where.

  24. Good luck with the paintjob. To strip wallpaper is hard work, I know. I love the pictures you have today. D

  25. wall paper queen of my heart, here i am, before the internet blinks off again.
    so you're putting a whiff of anthropo on your walls there?
    is that what your trip is about? to the shop? you lucky broad!
    i'm plastering here (nothing new), abrading, and then some. and then painting. whoo-hoo. may finish all of this in time to go back to work. may not. [sigh].
    hugs, my paper scraping friend,

  26. My dear Polka Dot Petticoat!
    Thank you for missing me!
    Unfortunately I´m getting divorced and of course the level of creativity is veeeery low at the moment. But I hope to be with you again soon! I can´t wait!!
    Hugs Maria
