I had the kids randomly start peeling wallpaper in my kitchen awhile ago. Well, to be more specific, at least 7 years ago as my mom was alive when they started. It has never been finished. At one point, we were forced to re-do our upstairs bathroom due to mold issues and that took some time. Then I had to work on wallpaper in Akila's room, and that took me a few years. Have I mentioned that I hate wallpaper? With a passion. I think it has a certain level of evil in it as a matter of fact.
When we bought our house 9 years ago, every inch of the house except one bedroom was wallpapered. It still mostly is. I have peeled wallpaper from two bedrooms, and one bathroom. And am now trying to finally finish the kitchen. The kitchen had 4 different wallpapers in it alone. It was very busy. And underneath the busy maroon based wallpaper, are some very BRIGHT orange/peach color, and some walls which are in very bad shape. Every time I peel wallpaper from a room, I am reminded of why the previous owners (who are really cool) probably put wallpaper up- the walls are in rough shape. We stink at patching walls also, so hopefully it looks OK in the long run.
Akila was gone in respite all weekend, it was a nice break. That is why she is not pictured above helping (although she may not have helped even if she was home, would depend on her mood- which has consistently been horrible lately).
