Happy Thursday, My Lovelies! I think I mentioned that we were in DIY h$ll lately….well, here's the scoop!
Mr. Art @ Home and I decided to strip the wallpaper from our bathroom walls and paint. We've been sick of the wallpaper for quite some time. We started with the basement bathroom, and the wallpaper was refusing to come off. We watched every YouTube and HGTV video we could find on the subject, and we were following instructions. Nothing worked short of the tedious inch by inch scrape and peel method.
Needless to say it took us three weeks to strip, patch, and paint one small bathroom.
It was time to call in the professionals!
The painter came in and looked at our three remaining bathrooms and sea in he could have the job done in 1 1/2 to 2 days. He was so very wrong! He had a team, and it took him six days. The paint came off with the wallpaper. The only thing we can conclude is perhaps the first owners of the home painted without priming first. Who knows? We had to leave the house, which isn't easy when you're homeschooling! :/ We have been vacuuming and mopping sheetrock dust for days. But it's done. Thank God!
