Certainly did, and with passion as well. That has to be a record number of words in a Chrisn post, if you don't include the quotes. I awoke a sleeping tiger. Want to buy my tiger's teeth. I think I'll let go of his tail now, and run.

Beat to death! Wallpaper


Alright tigers...

Got done with the slimy mess the wallpaper left me. It was a mix of Dif, and water/vinegar. I thought the WV mix worked better than the Dif. I sprayed, waited about 10-15 mins then scraped it off with my DW knife.

Hit the walls with a pole sander real quick. Just got done rolling out the Gardz (can't call it paint). Not sure if I got enough on but I can smell it so I know its up.

I was planning on putting some thin paneling (mdf) and have stiles go up to top rail. I need some help if I should do that or just nail in frames on the current dry wall. The top of the wall will be wallpaper. Also what should I do with all the trim while Im working on a room? I plan on replacing and matching the whole house but I can't do it all at once. Should I remove it before I continue with the job or leave it up?
