Consider this our baby-is-supposed-to-be-with-us-but-he's-not Distraction project #1. With two rooms left with wallpaper in our home (3 of which we've already finished, phew!), we are determined to be wallpaper free very soon. I realize Andrew is not coming back, but this sure beats sitting on the couch in tears everyday. I'm also heading back to substitute teaching soon-- as much as I hate it. I'd consider teaching full-time again, but we're talking pregnancy #2 after my 6-week postpartum appointment and the doctor gives the green light. That appointment is on Monday the 17th... so surely I'll be given an update and possibly answers as to why. Of course that won't really be helpful for anything other than prevention our second time around.
Back to the wallpaper...
We tackled the laundry room this weekend and we're officially on to stage #2, patching & sanding! It's our least favorite part, though all parts are pretty terrible. We are however, looking forward to finishing this project and making this room more functional! Currently, there is no storage. We are planning to put cabinets above the washer and dryer, a new door that you can't see daylight through the cracks (great for Chicago winters, huh? Talk about insulation deficient) and probably a new utility sink top in white for the room. We've chosen green for the room and are anxious to paint. Our goal for this project is 8 days. We started this project on Saturday and intend to be completed Sunday, January 16th. Not only is it a small room, but we would like to be able to do our laundry soon enough!
Wallpaper = hideous. Right?
Good riddance pink and blue speckled wallpaper.
