There is a special hell reserve for people who wallpaper bathrooms. angry I have no doubt whatsoever!

And people who don't properly prepare walls before wallpapering them should be shot. devil

Also, I do not want to know what those lumps are under the fuzzy backing. yuk

Unless it's money. If those lumps are money, then this incredibly messy, sticky and time consuming task will be worth it. Well, at least for the first bathroom. I have another two waiting.

That is all. Thank you.

You've been away from BGG for a week because you were de-70's-izing your bathroom‽

Groovy.

And VERY grumpy! I am drinking some tea from my Peanuts Lucy "Crabby/Bossy/Fussbudget/Grouchy" mug. Before I return to strip the last of the wallpaper from behind the toilet and the light fixture. Of the one bathroom. Ugh.

I had to work up to it! It's a job 10 years in the making. When we moved into this house, about 10 years ago, we imbibed a bit too many Mimosas on New Years Eve, and agreed in our inebriated state that the ugly striped wallpaper in the main bathroom had to go!

Imagine Tripp's contest-winning Avatar lining a tiny bathroom:

 


Only in burgundy, beige, pink, purple and yellow. Yeah. For real. You'd get rid of it too!

We managed to get about half of it peeled away, leaving a fuzzy backing, before we gave up. It's stayed in that state until this week, when I attacked it with renewed vigor. And tools. Wonderful tools! Courtesy of one of the guys in my gaming group. I owe you big time, Christian!!! kiss

When I worked construction for a summer we used a very simple solution to get rid of ugly 70's wallpaper. Mix amonia and water in a weed sprayer, pump it up, spray on said 70's wallpaper (the stuff we were removing was like carpet but on the wall and it covered the WHOLE wall) let it sit, and then it comes right on off, if it stuck, spray it some more. Just make sure to use a respirator and have plenty of ventilation.

The only way to make a wall-papered bathroom worse is to add a carpet.

I don't know what you are talking about. I don't see anything at all.

Avatars aren't clues to personal traits. Just look at this hot chick:

Destiny's got her hand way, way up in their puppets! It's an unpleasant tingling! The deepest of wriggles!

I just see that arch-thingy. And your flag says Missouri.

Even funnier, you guys can't come up with a better postal abbreviation - you have to use "MO" because all of the other gooder better bestest states took the other available letters.

Silly Missourian...
