so, on a snowy friday night i decided to take down the wallpaper in our living room. it was only on two walls, so not a big task. it actually came off very easily. the patterned layer peeled easily off of the paper back and then with a lot of warm water the paper/glue layer peeled right off too. probably the easiest wallpaper i've ever removed.

i made quite a mess, but, all in all, little damage done. nothing a trash bag or two couldn't take care of. jon though, was not content to be an innocent bystander in this process. oh no. he decided he too wanted to turn his doing-dial up a notch.

yes. that is my living room ceiling. yes. that is my husband removing the tiles. yes. that is a giant 6 foot by 5 foot mirror above my mantle. a couple of hours and 10 more trash bags later...

good bye ceiling. stay tuned for what we do next.

(in my husband's defense, the tiles were terrible. and we did plan on taking them down. just not this saturday. but now we're motivated, right?...)


  1. Libby, Great work. My question is: The background on your blogspot, is that your old living room wallpaper? ;-)

  2. haha, nope. if that were the case it would've been awesome and i would've left it up.
