You gotta love wallpaper stripping

We started redecorating our main living room. The first task was wallpaper stripping. Argh!

I must say, thanks to a wallpaper steamer, this task turned to be far less laborious than I thought at first. During 4 hour wallpaper workout (you can banish your bingo wings easily doing this), we had done a lot. It turned out that we would have to replaster one of the walls again (why nothing is simple in this house!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a steamer note, do not smoke indoors! The previous owners did, and look what we had to deal with. Grim!

Tip: Good idea is to wrap an old damp towel on a long handle floor brush to wipe it from the ceiling.

Any more tips about removing wallpaper? Please let me know.
