Well I worked my butt off all day yesterday and I finished stripping all of that paper. It was 9 o'clock last night when I got finished. I didn't stop for supper because if I had eaten, I would have been too tired to finish the task. I thought I would get something to eat when I finished, but I was too darned tired. The room is big 16 x 30 so it was lots of work. I am glad I have good upper body strength or I wouldn't have been able to keep my left arm up with the steamer while scraping the paper off with my right. I guess all of that weight lifting and farm work over the years has paid off. So now I have to wash all the walls down, patch imperfections, do a little sanding and then start painting. I'll probably start that on Sunday.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
