I've never been big on making New Year's "resolutions." Ambitions for the new year have always been more my style. But this year I think my ambition to get my dining room wallpaper stripped had better be reinforced by the resolution to get it done before the end of this month.
Started the job last Saturday night, and got the old paper on the southeast corner and the strip over the portal to the living room taken down.
I'm finding more than a little irony in the fact that since last spring I've been assigned to the Home Décor department at the Big Blue Box Store. And every so often I'm called on to sell people the wallpaper scorer and the pre-mixed stripper fluid we carry. But neither is so cheap or works so well as the hot water, vinegar, and dishwashing liquid stripper I mix up as needed or as the Hohlenpoker I learned to make from Jim Parodi's website.

just as the living room was.
