The floor was redone about 2 years ago, and soon after, I painted the cabinets a nice Heavy Cream from Behr, and I've just been procrastinating on getting this part started (yeah, by 2 years.) This is the 2nd time I've tackled a wallpaper removal project and the first time didn't go so well. This time, comparatively, was a cinch!
On top of the green striped wallpaper in most of the kitchen and hallway, there was a border that I probably wouldn't have disliked by itself, but those damn stripes!
Depending on when/how the paper was installed, of course, and assuming it's vinyl paper, there is no need to score and do all that other stuff that can damage your walls. Peel the vinyl facing off of the wall, spray the left behind glue paper with this awesome WP Chomp solution you can get at any hardware store, and scrape away. As long as I had sprayed enough and let it sit long enough, the glue paper came off in strips as large as the scraper was wide.
I have to say, it was a very easy and relatively quick project to complete. And to think, I had been putting it off for 2 1/2 years because I was dreading what might be as I started to remove paper. I've always done the score, soak or steam methods and this was just so, so much easier.
Once the painting is done, it's just finishing touches and my kitchen redo is complete! Speaking of finishing touches, check out my Pinterest. Which fan would you choose?
I can't wait to have it all done!
