|Corner of Master Bedroom|

Besides stripping part of the wall in the bedroom I've begun stripping in the stairwell and upstairs hallway. Actually I got really sick of the paper one day and just started ripping!
Before I moved in my husband made me promise that I wouldn't pull up the carpet. I broke that promise after about a month. I kept smelling something foul and discovered it was the carpet. Noble helped me move furniture around and I did a section at a time until all the oak floors were uncovered.
This is the color of the 40 year old smelly, dirt encrusted carpet. When I pulled it up I found that the rubber pad was decomposing and had to be swept up (sort of like the black stuff in the bedroom). The stairs are the last part and I've procrastinated because it's so tedious.
This is the color of the wallpaper and the paneling in the living room, stairwell and upstairs hallway:
|Dusty pink, mauve and blue/grey|
|Floral paneling that looks like it should be in a Doublewide|
I began peeling off paper and immediately liked what I saw:
|Warm floral - same shades as green carpet|
|Tweed with tan, cream and green|
|Tan with white fern leaf pattern|
The pink and blue finally got to me and I started ripping. Some time soon I'll finish the removal. In the meantime I'm looking for information about repairing the plaster and preparing it for painting.
