I’m absolutely pooped. We’ve been decorating for eight days and will finally get round to the paper and paint stage tomorrow. It took six days just to remove the wallpaper, two layers each from walls and ceiling. Our biggest fear was that the plaster would come away with the paper but we’ve been pleasantly surprised at the reasonable condition of the plaster. We were unpleasantly surprised by the difficulty of removing the top layer of paper 🙁
We’ve been in the house thirteen years and it’s the first time we’ve stripped this room but at least it won’t want doing again for a good long while. It’s not really helping to get the bunting done or prepare for the show next month either. I don’t mind doing it though as I’m desperate for it to be completed so I can get back in my own bed. Bliss.
