I’m trying to upload pictures of the kitchen to show you what we’ve done to it so far, but today is not my day for internet goodness.
We are going to get rid of this godawful wallpaper this weekend and I am so excited I could pee my pants. We’ve been living with this Grid of Doom for almost a year, because priority went first to our bedroom, then to the two offices/bedrooms, and then to enduring the winter, and most recently to fixing the small flood in our basement. It’s a fun combination of lazy and crisis that has kept us from giving the kitchen the attention it deserves.
No longer! Last night we moved the chairs into the garage, the table into the middle of the room, the cookbook shelving unit into the living room, and all foods and food-prep items (salt & pepper shakers, knife block, utensil holders) into cupboards. Then we took those little piranha things (not actual piranhas, this kind of piranha) and scored the hell out of the wallpaper in the kitchen and the small bathroom, in which the wallpaper is a floor-to-ceiling kind of deal and so, so gross.
Even though NinjaHusband and I have removed wallpaper from the three bedrooms, we didn’t really do much of that together. N and his brother took our bedroom (and got the crappier deal, as that wallpaper was seemingly adhered with superglue), my Mom and I took my office/guest room (the one with the creepy doll wallpaper… remember?) …
… and N did his office alone, which was very lovely for me.
I’m not sure how this weekend is going to turn out. I may end up with a blank canvas of a kitchen and only some mild-namecalling, or I may end up punting my husband (or getting punted by him) out the door.
Hopefully when it comes time to share all the gory details with the blog I will have a better internet situation and be able to actually upload pictures.
If you’ll excuse me, I have to go mix the Dif.
