Moving Out: One Last Project


For the last several years, I have posted home improvement projects that John and I have done to our house.  We've changed the doors, doorbell, counters, and carpet.  We've done all kinds of projects that helped make the house feel more updated and more like our home.  Well, this is the last one.  In a little bit, John and I will be moving out and into our new home!  It's a little bittersweet, but I'm very much looking forward to giving you all a tour of our new place :)

The last project we did at the house turned out to be one of the most exhausting, and we did not expect for it to be.  There is a small bathroom in the basement and it had some pretty ugly wallpaper.  The loon is Minnesota's state bird, but I'm not sure I need to shower with them...  Well, the wallpaper was NOT going to let go without a fight.  We used fabric softener, water, steam, and scrapers to finally peel all of it away.  It took well over 12 hours, and (as a side note) if you use the fabric softener method yourself, be prepared for it to wreck your nails!  It wasn't cute.  But it was worth it.  We painted it the same smokey blue that is in the upstairs bathroom.  I love how it looks with the basement tile!
Before... it's certainly not the worst bathroom ever, but it could be better.
FINALLY all the wallpaper is removed
After; I really like this color!

So, with the worst/most difficult project to date, I am prepared to say goodbye to this house and hello to our new one :)
