The Great Wallpaper Scrape Begins...

While thousands of crazies descended on DC, I spent this beautiful first weekend of spring inside, scraping wallpaper. Almost every single wall of our new house is covered with lovely embossed wallpaper, topped by several layers of shiny paint.

With the help of a 6100 3M dust mask with P100 particulate filters, razor blades, a 14-in-1 tool, a spray bottle of soapy water, and a willing husband, I got about 85% of the wallpaper scraped off the walls of our future bedroom.

Score, spray, scrape gets the job done.
