Tomorrow I'll start sanding the big globs down and do some patching while I wait for a delivery of Gardz from Amazon to arrive next week. Let's just say that our textured drywall will have a little more texture in places than it used to. Gardz will basically seal the glue to the drywall so that I can prime and paint without having to worry about it peeling or bubbling.
So, I'm feeling about 100X better than I did on Sunday night and I'm very grateful for online DIY Forums. Add in no falls, broken bones or ambulance rides - hey, life is good!
I've now moved on to more fun things like deciding which shade of yellow to use on the walls! As you can see, the non wallpapered part of the room is already yellow and I'm staying with it. Yellow is my favorite color and it has looked great in this room for 12 years.
I picked this sign up on my last trip to visit my daughter and am using it as my inspiration for this room. Not only do I love the saying but the colors too. I'm going to punch it up a bit with touches of red which I'm excited about, it's been years since my red kitchen when we first got married. Actually... what I'm aiming for looks a lot like this fabric collection!
Even Tucker says Hmmpfh! to removing wallpaper! He is seriously miffed at the lack of lap time lately and seems to be wondering where the top bunk in that room went to. The windowsill is kind of cramped for good bird watching.
