Water + Electricity = ?




I'm not sure why I'm hesitant about removing wallpaper around electrical outlets, but I am. Probably because I'm home alone and Cody & Chow don't know how to use the phone. It seems wrong that you need so much more moisture to remove the paper than to stick it up in the first place.
Looks like I put the in progress pic before the before pic...oh well use your imagination...it isn't very pretty either way. I did find out why there were 2 layers of paper in one certain area...Yup, it was covering something...dart holes! There are quite a few pokes all around a dart board size circle. So remember that if you ever need a quick fix before selling your house! Save the extra paper. What a bunch of morons!

Which reminds me, weren't you the first one to bless the freshly painted bar room with a dart in the wall?

Oh 'Berta, that does bring back memories. It reminds me of the "burlap-styled" wallpaper I used to have in the stairwell. You get these jobs done so quickly, I envy your energy and enthusiasm.
