Wednesday Project: Wallpaper Off

In last week’s installment, we discussed the particulars of removing wallpaper.  Well, the wallpaper is finally gone and below you can see the before and after shots.

All in all, the wallpaper part of the project wasn’t bad.  It was hot, messy and fairly labor-intensive work, but the overall small space and the use of the power steamer made this project easy to get done.

As you can see above, I removed the toilet and sink.  Though I loathe plumbing, I did this for a couple of reasons.  First, there was wallpaper behind each and removing them was the easiest way to remove all of the paper.  Second, I’m planning to replace the faucet and taking the sink down actually makes working on the pedestal part of the sink easier.

Though the wallpaper down, it’s not yet time to stop and celebrate.  Really, the work is just beginning.  In fact, how we do with the next step – prepping the walls for painting – will go a long way in determining just how successful our project is.  Lord willing, we’ll discuss that next time.
