  1. Good news that the car was nothing major, Janet.

    Looking forward to seeing bigger versions of the pictures, Larry.

  2. Next time I get one of these bright ideas, like doing a massive declutter, stop me, 'k? My back is in crazy pain this morning. Though, I will admit that getting this done is an enormous relief. Can't wait for the guys to pick this up on Friday morning.

    I've still got a little bit to do, but I'd say 90% is done. Then I will spend some time over the weekend figuring out how to reorganize my shelves - books, collectibles, etc. That, however, is minor and I won't feel the need to do it all at once.

    Happy Monday!

  3. It's going to be a nice day for a dog-swim around here. Wish I had some dogs. And a place to swim.

    Larry, it's just the one layer of wallpaper, but: 1) they stuck it directly onto the drywall so I'm having to go very carefully such as not to have to patch the drywall afterward; and b) I did not know I could just paint over it omg I would totally have done that instead. Ah well, if anyone decides to pick me up a dog and a lake, grab me a wife too while you're out, thanks.

  4. Jen, I saw this trick on This Old House and used it in my project. It works. Get a spray bottle, fill it with water, spritz the paper. Give it a minute to soak through & loosen the glue on the other side. Scrape off with a plastic spatula. Sometimes you can get a fingernail under the edge & peel off whole swatches. Peeling stuff is a personal obsession, although I don't find it as compelling to get labels off beer bottles as I would otherwise expect. (Oh, just take the dogs & the lake. The wife will find some excuse to keep you from slipping out with the dogs.)

  5. Hi, all. Nothing doing here but enjoying reading of all the activity you have going on. Go to it!
