PAINT OR WALL PAPER?

Linda G. Hill suggested the word prompt “wallpaper” for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. What an easy word for a Saturday post. Still I didn’t manage to post, because I was too busy shopping for wallpaper! But I will run this over to her event even though it is not Saturday. Late, late, late.

I have read a few posts but not many. My time is occupied with Home. I am redecorating; that entails a lot of cleaning at the same time.

I do know some of you wonder what happened to me if I disappear too many days, so I’m explaining. I’m feeling fine. If I pass to eternity in the next few days it will be likely that many of you will go with me because Jesus came for us. That would be a nice thing to happen. In that case, I’ll see you face to face shortly.

Meanwhile it is back to the question, “Paint or Wallpaper?” I got the most terrific bargains on new furniture. Two peacock color recliner, swivel, rockers, and off white sofa and loveseat. So I’m changing colors all the way round. Pictures, flowers, vases, even trashcans!

We have discovered the magic of using a clothes steamer to remove the old wallpaper. If you have any wallpaper to remove, be sure you know about this. See You Tube.

Having fun, feeling well, and enjoying this new project with R and R. Sammy is fine with the new diggins we are forcing on him.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Paint or wallpaper!? PAINT!! Always. You can even do “faux wallpaper” with paint if you reeeally want the look of seams, but paint is much easier to work with and easier to redo… as you apparently know since you’ve looked at the Youtube videos of removing it! 😨 (😂)
    Will we get to see pics of the new walls and decor?
    ❤️& 🙏, c.a.

    Yes! I hope we do get to see after pics!
    I don’t have any wallpaper anymore, I’ve done it twice in my life and that was enough! Did you and your husband do it together? If you did, and your still married, good job!! I knew when we made it through doing my son’s room together, we had a strong marriage! 😂🤣 That was almost 30 years ago! Yea us!

    Paint always paint I have never met a wallpaper I liked some are pretty, but when it comes to cleaning it more often than not it is a bigger pain than it is worth if it can be done at all. When I was growing up we lived in a house that was built I believe in the mid 1800’s and our mother got the bright idea to strip the old outdated wallpaper using pans of hot water to loosen it. The first layer was probably from the 1950’s and they just got older from there. I remember at least 10 distinct wallpapers in the living room. I would sit and take chunks that had been chipped from the wall and using steam would work them apart. I can tell you there has been some truly ugly wallpaper in the world.
    When she decided to do the kitchen I opted out with strong stubborn foot stomping no. I had enough of wallpaper it had been there decades and as far as I was concerned it could stay there forever. She finally decided to just paint over it and that was the right thing to do.

    My husband and I owned several apartment and we painted them always before we got a new renter. The paint made them look and smell fresh and clean. But I always papered one wall in the living room with neutral design and color, it made the room look elegant!
