Dream Home Before pictures...

We officially started a list of remodel projects after Christmas. We went to the house one day, which  wasn't really a planned work day, but it went amazingly well!! I thought it was just going to be 3 or 4 of us and it ended up being 8 adults and 3 yr old happy helper. In about 3 hours we stripped all the wallpaper in the 1/2 bath, laundry room, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom, master bathroom, and the living room!!! Not only did we accomplish that, but we also removed the trim in the dining room and pulled up the carpet! I never imagined in my wildest goals that we would accomplish so much in just THREE HOURS!!!

Here are just a few before shots....

Wallpaper must go!
 Laminate flooring needs to go as well.
 Now they are both GONE!!
BEFORE: Dining Room
I am not a fan of this wallpaper either, nor do I think carpet in the dining room is a good idea.
AFTER: Dining Room MINUS the wallpaper and carpet
This is part of the wonderful work crew that showed up to help out! Not a great shot, but they were all to busy working and I hated to bother the help!

I have to say I will endorse the wallpaper remover DIF till I no longer have breath in me! We scored the wallpaper with a scoring tool, rolled on the DIF gel, let it sit 15-20 minutes....peeled off like magic! AMAZING STUFF!!! (It's also odorless, the spray bottle concentrate is not and I did not think it worked as well.) All I can say it that it really pays to do your homework before starting a project!
Stay tuned for more projects to come!
