Today I'm working on removing the ugly-@ss, cheap sh!t pastel wallpaper border that has adorned my kitchen ceiling since we bought the place. Clearly the seller was trying to quickly "dress up" the place for quick sale with the unsold rejects from the bottom of the Lowe's discontinued pattern remnant bin. Yeah, somehow they even managed to find matching curtains, which are long, long gone.
It's an awful, tedious process - standing on the kitchen table (we don't have a stepladder), scoring it, spraying it with the toxic remover gel, waiting 15 minutes, peeling it off in shreds, wiping off the excess. If this wallpaper remover gel stuff gets in my eyes I'll be too blind to ever blog again.
I'll be glad to get it done! I already have the paint that's going on the walls when I'm done (beige eggshell finish), and I'm considering putting in a chair rail and some wainscotting. Our dreadful faux-cutting-block Formica kitchen countertop may be next to go.
