DIY Shout Out!

May 18, 2010 03:32 by ehouston

I would like to send a SHOUT OUT to the well trained, detail oriented people that put up the wallpaper in my new old house!!  Using sizing or primer on the drywall before adding thick pasted vinyl paper to the wall was apparently just one step to many.  I understand your need for immediate gratification and am so excited to see that you went right over the wallpaper border! 


(Yes, what you think you see is correct.  The drywall below the chair rail is missing the top layer of paper.  Insert scream here.)

I am also anxiously awaiting the opportunity to spend the next week repairing the dramatically damaged wall before I get to add my final coat of paint.  YEAH!! 

Off to Home Depot....I believe one of these is in my near future.

Oh..I am soooooo sorry. I would use retro paneling.
We're gonna have to repaint inside soon....I love the finished room...dread the process. I'm so glad you stopped by today. I haven't been around to send messages..Mom and Dad have both been sick..I'm an only so no Bros or Sis to help out.....They are up and around but one has a heart flutter and the other a little lung problem. It's not horrific, but just enough to be annoying to them, so, I've been taking them to Doc appointments, etc. I get home and just crash.
How's that little one doing? well, he's not so little any more.
