Like I said in an earlier post, we have lots of dreams for our home but thus far have had limited resources. Our big project last year was saving for our wedding which was this past November. Now we can focus more on the house.
But we did have the chance to make some changes here and there. It's the small accomplishments that keep us motivated!
One of the first things we did was start to remove the wall paper. Our plaster walls had/have wall paper on every single wall. Thankfully, I feel like we've been fairly lucky as there has been only one layer (so far) of wall paper, which makes it tons easier to remove. Above is a picture of my husband and I when we first started to take the wallpaper off. Now we have the paper off in the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and the hall. BUT removing the paper isn't the hard part.
The hard part is removing the glue from the plaster walls. You would think after six months of dreary, cold, midwestern winter that I would have all the glue removed from the walls.
You would also be drastically wrong! Why remove glue when you can curl up on the couch next to a fire and watch movies all day?
The glue is gone from the dining room and almost all of the living room. Above is a picture of what a wall looks like with glue and without glue. Only 15 walls to go. Or something like that. Sigh.
