This weekend the wise and bearded one and I rented our very own dumpster. Because I crave instant gratification, I think demolition is so much fun! In two days we took our very 70s orange shag basement back to…the dark ages. We’ll put some more pictures up in the next couple of days, but here I want to document my fascination with the wallpaper that you find behind the wallpaper.
The sweetest paper was this bucolic doe and buck scene. If only it were salvagable I think it would be great! As it is, it only exists under the stair well.
Beside taking down wallpaper, we also: cleaned the garage, tore out the orange/rust shag carpet, tore out the bar, ripped down the hideous drywall ceiling, and removed plastic tile that was under the carpet. Nasty, nasty stuff! Now instead of a “finished” basement, we have a totally unfinished cave, but I have faith in Nate and the ideas that bounce around in his head. Hopefully, the rebuilding of the space will be timely and relatively painless. And I promise: no wallpaper!
