Converting the Converted

So that house project thing I mentioned and then mentioned again

Before the close of last year, a cottage/project was bought, with the plan to convert the converted cottage back into two.The house is filled with wallpaper. Everywhere. Wallpaper on the ceiling, in the bathroom, under the wallpaper – it’s so overwhelming on the senses, it’s hard to think straight when inside. So before the building warrant arrives we’re making do with what we’ve got. Who knew white paint could be so immediately calming?

P.S. In case you’re nosy, project updates are staying over on my Instagram (unless something artsy happens).

  1. One of the worst experiences of my childhood was scraping wallpaper off of walls when my dad/then stepmother moved in together. He had just bought a house that was ~150 years old and hadn’t done any renovation to it. She moved in and decided the wallpaper needed to go. So my brother, my dad, and I spent about three weeks scraping 150 years worth of wallpaper off of walls. It was hell.
