STRIPPING

 Well... I'm gunna do some more stripping today.

Ahhh... NO.  Not that sorta stripping!  lol

Wallpaper.  Lacy is coming over to give me a hand to do a bit more of the walls.

There's still heaps to do, but I'm in no hurry to get it done.

I'm NOT looking forward to having to empty the china cabinets in the lounge, so will leave them till last.  I'm hoping Lacy and I will get the kitchen done today.

I have to go out this afternoon and pick up a friend's kid from Driving School.  'Z' will spend the night here, then I'll take 'Z' back to Driving School in the morning.  'Z' is doing a course through Cambridge High School... which I think is rather neat.

They sure never had anything like that when I was a kid!

And well... that's me for now.  I better make a start on me day, which means get all my blue glass stuff down from above the kitchen cupboards.  There's bloody wallpaper up there too.  

...
ABOVE:  I got all the blue glass stuff down, then Lacy got all the boards they were sitting on down.  OMG talk about disgustingly dirty!
Steam/grease rise from the oven and stove top eh?  Eeeeew.

ABOVE:  Lucky we have a skinny bitch in the family!  She fits up there just fine.  It sounds like it's hard going though. I'm just hoping she doesn't end up falling through the pantry ceiling.

12 noon:   AND... the biggest room in the house no longer has wallpaper on it.  And it was a right bitch getting the last bits off I can tell you.

Lacy has now gone home, and I'm taking a break.  Lunch time I reckon.

ABOVE:  Yaaa, I don't have to stand and stir dinner.  Z is doing it for me.
We are having Teriyaki Chicken on rice for dinner.

Dinner... done.
Time to chill out and relax.  I'm totally looking forward to bed tonight.

  9. I have seen kitchens where they raised all the cupboards to the ceiling and put open shelving below them. It has to be just the right layout to work. But they are fabulous.

    Open shelving is not good near a stove, and your pantry wall is not configured in a way that could be raised, so I do not have think it would work for you. But I mention it because you have Steve. And he works wonders.

  10. I despise wallpaper, it is such a pain! Lucky you had yourself a good helper.
