Renovation Lesson #106

I'm exhausted. We spent all day Saturday & Sunday working on the house and are back at it today. The living room is one coat of wax away from being ready and we're cranking the rest of the rooms out (well, except for the kitchens, that's gonna take a while).
One thing I've learned about myself is that I'm fairly ADD when it comes to projects. The other night while waiting for the ladder I decided that I should start stripping the wood in the front hall. So sure enough, I got some paint stripper and got to work.

It's a lot more work than I thought. Probably not worth doing but it looks terrible right now so I'll keep at it for the time being.

The front entrance isn't all bad, while stripping the wallpaper my mom uncovered this wonderful vintage wallpaper. We're guessing it's from the early 20th century & thinking it'll stay.
How did you spend your weekend?

That wallpaper is awesome - I think half the fun of reno is the treasures you find. I'm sure you find plenty of not so pleasant things but little bits like this really make it fun in my eyes :)
