A wall of work

22 Mar

This past weekend’s work might not bowl you over but it was a lot of work getting lots of layers of wallpaper and paint off a paneled wall in the small front bedroom of the cottage.  Jessica came in to give me a hand (in her very cool purple velour hoodie)  and we worked away listening to the Dixie Chicks and loudly singing along.  The windows were open so I am sure I have now confirmed for the neighbors that I’m a complete loon.

I didn’t take a full “before” pic but since it’s not really done yet, I don’t really have a proper “after” pic either — I’m fallin’ down on the job.  Just trust me when I say lots of layers of paint and wallpaper.  The picture of the “heart” is just taken off my phone — I want to go back and get a snap with the proper camera but this was seriously a random scrap of wallpaper that was remaining on one of the walls and it just happens to be in the shape of a heart.  Love it.
