It must be a Friday afternoon thing, peeling wallpaper. The kids were home all day just like last time. One thing lead to another and the next thing we knew, we were ripping off the kitchen wallpaper gleefully. Even Lucie got in on the action. Can't say I like this blue much better, but at least I'm one step closer to the bright kitchen I imagine.
PS- Thanks for the house love. I'm quite smitten too. There's a lot of work to be done (just surface treatment thankfully), but I feel like I'm "home." I also wanted to say that I by no means mean to make fun of the previous owners decorating choices, and don't want anyone to feel bad if you like the stuff I'm removing. The previous owners created themselves a lovely home here, and it was through their loving care of this old house that I saw her potential. It's just that our things don't go at all with the current style. So, we're stripping her down to the more spare quality that we love.
