Clara's Kitchen

I hadn't wallpapered in thirty years. 

It was an accident that we looked under the old wallpaper in the kitchen upstairs at the farm.  Then we lost our heads and the next thing we knew, we had taken all the old wallpaper off.

There was a pattern with salt and pepper shakers - fifties for sure; then a pattern with lighthouses and small boats; a geometric pattern that I bet Clara was glad to get rid of and the last paper was a blue design - popular in the eighties. 

We spent ten minutes at Lowe's, the only place we could find that had wallpaper.  I picked a plain textured paper in a beige color that I thought would hide all the bumps and blips.  We used four double rolls and didn't have to match the paper.  Horrah!

The result of our efforts is quite amazing considering what the cat's apartment looked like. 

The next project will be the bathroom.  We arn't going to be too fussy. 


Two months to go before the big day.
