Stripped!

Racy title, I know. Don't worry... nothing trashy here. Well, not trashy, but tacky. 

Here's what our formal dining room looked like prior to 2:30 p.m. today
This is about 4:30 p.m.

With a little help from soap, water, Dif, a scraper, scorer, and our own brawn, we have made quite a bit of progress. At this point, the entire room is bare and no more of that tacky wallpaper is to be found (except the curtains which were the same print. We're using them as drop cloths.

Nice work! I'm really impressed that the previous owners were able to find curtains in the exact pattern of that wall paper. That's really special. Can't wait to see it when it's done :)
