Cannot believe the progress the boys made last night when they went over to the house. My husband, and a couple of our GREAT friends, went over to the house to start prepping for painting. My husband went about sanding and painting our white and gold railing black (which looks much more modern and crisp in the space, especially with our colour choice of light yellow and grey accent wall). It looks so fantastic, I cannot wait to get in there and paint tomorrow, to show off how nice it will be with the rest of our "look".
He put our two friends to work on stripping walls of wallpaper. The one bedroom, which will turn into a beautiful little girl's room, the wallpaper came off so easily. We were so excited that maybe all the wallpaper would be the same. Shouldn't have gotten our hopes up, the wallpaper in the dining room and the entry way is the wallpaper from hell, from ancient times, glued on with cement or something.
Our friends are champions to willingly do this for us. To have to pull little strips of the top layer off, bits at a time, and then sponge off the back. We owe them for eternity. Although, I am sure they are sick of us telling them how thankful we are for their help, but we will never stop saying it. Our payment will be dinner next week and coming over whenever they want :)
Hope you can see how extensive it was in the before photo...didn't have the best photos of it (kicking myself now). So the one wall opposite that glass cabinet is completely covered in wallpaper as is the main wall in the entryway.
