Moving On

Well we still haven't made a decision about the ceiling in the living room....
We're kinda putting it off, imagine that!
BUT we did manage to get the wallpaper paste off the stairway walls. Those huge walls. Here is the before pic.Here is after.
We found out what worked was a tall squeegee, ya know one of those car ones! I liberally sprayed, with a garden sprayer fabric softener diluted in hot water, onto the walls, (it helps if they're plaster), and let it sit just for a minute or two and then hubs went to work with the squeegee. Worked like a charm. Now just have to figure out to get the paint done very nicely by the ceiling. I still think that is going to involve me on a board that is in between the ladder and the top of the staircase.......

Wallpaper is evil! I wonder why people use it when patterns go out of style so quick. Glad yours came off easily.
