One of the first things I knew I wanted to do with the new house was get rid of the wallpaper in the kitchen.
I liked the blue the rest of the room was painted, and then plan was to strip the walls and repaint everything that blue to match. (Did I mention the previous owners left 6 cans of paint for us? Except that blue wasn't one of them. At least it wasn't hard to match.)
I knew we had to remove the wallpaper sooner rather than later because there was wallpaper behind the refrigerator. And I know if we moved the fridge in, it would never get down. I talked to a few friends and family members who gave me confidence and ideas and after a quick stop at Home Depot I was ready to go!
Step 1: Remove any loose ends of paper.
Step 2: Score the Paper.
Step 3: Spray with special wallpaper removing gel.
Step 4: Scrap of the wallpaper.
So the project turned out to be just a little more than I bargained for. Don't believe me? Well this is how that one section of wall looked on the 3rd day of wallpaper peeling.
