Plus, it's grapey. Not that there's anything wrong with grapes, but all over the wall of a powder room? It kind of makes me anxious...
Judge for yourself:
Little did I know that this is in fact some sort of super-duper wallpaper and won't come off in nice strips like other wallpaper that's been steamed, but in fact needs a two-step process, where I steam it, yank off the top layer, and then steam the gluey layer off.
I also decided to do this during a heat wave. It occurs to me that the last time I stripped wallpaper was in July several years ago so I guess I only like doing home fix-its in summer. It was like my own little steam room in the powder room, especially when I stood on the step-stool to get to the top layers and stood up high where all the steam gathered.
Here is the gorgeous after picture:
I know it doesn't look better yet, especially where the builders paint stripped off with the gluey layer of wallpaper exposing the wallboard, but hey, at least it isn't grapes!
