Stripping On A Friday Night
Remember the last time I posted about our entry way? No? Neither did I. It was way back on January 2nd. And we haven’t done a darn thing to it since then. Can you believe there has been half stripped wall paper staring me in the face everyday for months and I haven’t done anything about it? I was too wrapped up in the kitchen to even think about the foyer. Our “in the meantime” kitchen fix is nowhere near complete, but I decided I could step away from it for a bit to make a little progress elsewhere. Last night after work and while the other half was at hockey, I got started on stripping the remaining wallpaper. It’s an oddly satisfying job. I don’t know how long I worked on this – I know I heard a full episode of How I Met Your Mother and a full episode of 30 Rock coming from the living room so it was at least an hour. And I’m nowhere near finished. But it’s great to see progress. Here is what it had been looking like since January. Don’t judge me because my house is a disaster. Ok, maybe you should.And here is what it looked like after an hour or so of elbow grease. Baby steps. Small victories keep my going. Is it strange that I’m super pumped to strip wallpaper on my Friday night? I figure the sooner I get it done, the sooner I can get back to the kitchen and finish my second fauxman shade.And just for fun, lets take a peek at what this room looked like when we first moved in. Oh gosh. It actually looked better didn’t it?What do you have planned for your Friday night? Tell me it’s more exciting than stripping wallpaper.
