wallpaper

Posted by PicasaByron and I hung wallpaper for the first time in our lives a few weeks ago. Have you ever hung wallpaper? We found it heart pumping, sweat inducing, tongue biting-ly HARD! :) Byron's had experience doing most household projects with his parents while growing up, but as we were hanging the sinister wallpaper, Byron said, "I'm now realizing why I never hung wallpaper with my parents, this is a no child project!" Byron essentially hung the wallpaper and I was his wallpaper cheerleader. He did the grunt work and I took care of any small fix-ups at the end. We made a good team and we're really happy with the result. Now, will we ever wallpaper again...

I understand completely. I did all of the walpapering on our home on Langley drive AFTER you kids went to sleep working from 8pm to 2 am. I did all of the walpapering in one week. It would have taken 2 years if I tried to do it when kids were up and either the three of you or I would be dead now :-)

BTW, that pattern makes my kind of dizzy.

I don't generally like wallpaper, but that's awesome!

Lucky to be the mom said...

The outcome is stunning!
I hung wall paper with my auntie - who was an interior decorator - for years! I don't think I could count the number of rooms I've wall papered!
Nice Job!

It looks great! My mom started a huge wallpapering project when I was younger - a professional was call in to finish the job. I don't think I will ever attempt to wallpaper. :) Christine
