I truly, honestly believe there is a special place in hell for people who willing wallpaper. There is a throne next to Lucifer for those who do it poorly, as our last homeowner did. I hate wallpaper! It’s always god-awful flowery barf or stupid sailboats or something completely stupid! So, in efforts to make Casa Chalupa more muy bueno, I decided to hack into the downstairs living room this week. Here are some things I have discovered about the room:
1. It appears to have been the exterior room at some point. The light used to be an arched-shaped window. The plaster that was used to fill in the hole made it a nightmare to get the wallpaper down.
2. Dark green paint + “carmel syrup” brown paint = at least two coats!
3. I don’t heart painting anymore.
4. We need a new house, one that’s already painted!
Cross your fingers for us!!
Buh-bye awful flowers!
Awful light socket with awful hole in the wall!
Thanks, baby, but I don’t think you’re ready to paint yet! I think it’s in her blood!
