More Wallpaper

As much fun as removing wallpaper is, removing painted wallpaper is even more thrilling. The stairwell and upstairs hallway all had painted wallpaper that had to be removed so that we could patch the plaster and paint...and get rid of the stupid looking wallpaper seams.

Lesson learned: don't paint over wallpaper.
