So what does a pregnant lady with 3 little kids do when her husband goes out of town for a week?Tear down the wallpaper of course.
I've been wondering for the last two years what was underneath the painted-over wallpaper. So I decided to take a peek. And this is what it turned into. I found out there was not only wall paper, but also a border, at least 3 layers of paint, and a chair rail that had been put on and then painted over as well. What a mess!Talmage decided to use his sword or his knife to help get it off the walls.
Avri is perfect at demolition (or destruction of any kind, for that matter) and so this was something that she really enjoyed. When we left to go play at a friend's house she said "And when we get back can we do more wallpaper?" So even though it was kind of a crazy thing to start doing, it worked out well because the kids were busy for about 3 days, and having fun doing it! We are actually working on remodeling/redecorating all of the bedrooms, but the girls' room is first. It's getting close to being done. Talmage has been begging to have his room done next. So our room may just look like this big mess for a while. But at least we are moving in the right direction!
