I hit the jackpot with my in-laws, in more ways than one. Right now, though, the top of that list is that they come visit and we get huge things done.
This weekend, for example, we took down all of the living room wallpaper!
It’s tough to describe the paint job underneath. It looks like there is a layer of rust-colored paint, covered by a taupe color in stripes and the whole thing was treated with something that made it crackle. Then there are these fake woodgrain-looking patches. And the lines between the stripes are sort of patterned dots.
It’s just odd. Someone put a TON of work into making it look like this, and I just can’t entirely figure out why.
As you can see in the last picture, the final bit to do is scrub off the glue, and we’ve already started.
If all goes as planned, this is on track to finish by the end of October!
