Once upon a time there was a blogger who thought she was uber design savvy and ordered wallpaper from eBay and forced her hubby to help her to put it up for her daughter's room. Fast forward 2.5 years later and the blogger lady thought how great would it be to get rid of the paper and freshen up her daughter's room. How hard can it really be? Hubby vehemently opposed and thought the kid's room was just fine. However, because blogger lady did hours of youtube research she confidently replied, 'It's not hard, I'll do it all by myself, you rest your pretty little fingers." Hubby ignored blogger lady and retreated to his man cave. Blogger lady was feeling so happy that she has prepped the room so nicely with the help of little K & D. Everyone was skipping along nicely. Blogger lady proceeded to score walls with some thingymajig wallpaper tool, added the solution to remove wallpaper and waited. She returned to the wall and started to pull at the wallpaper. "Oh no" she says, only the top layer was coming off...but she was hopeful that all layers would eventually come off with ease. But as time passed the glue wouldn't come off the wall. Four hours later and in a state of panic, blogger lady started using profanity and felt nauseous as she was anticipating her hubby's dreaded 'I told you so". Frantically, blogger lady retreated to her one salvation - her trusty laptop. She googled local painters and contractors and started to dial. Many rejected her request for help because the job wasn't big enough and she got depressed as she looked at her wall. Then the phone rang and the stars started to change. To be continued....
The wallpaper removal gone horribly wrong.
Gulp. I swear you tube made it look easy.
