Stripping at the Beach This Weekend!

Uhhhmmmm, that would be wallpaper stripping.
Can you see all the grasscloth wallpaper in this place?  It is in all of the public spaces of the beach house.  And it needs to come down.  It is badly damaged and fraying from cats' and dogs' claws. 

It is also thirty years old, so all of the thread fibers woven through the grass have rotted, which makes it just a mess to strip! 

I have the entryway about half-way stripped, and the dining area about a quarter of the way done.  Now it's time to finish it up.  It is truly a dreadful job, and it makes me sneeze!

At least I will have this great view, to remind me how truly blessed I am.


  1. We had some of this in our house when we bought it. I ended up plastering over it to avoid stripping it. The plaster looks great though! Good luck Amanda.

  2. you do have a wonderful view, so the effort is not wasted. What will be next for the walls?

  3. yes, just keep peaking out at the view and time will fly by ... best of luck to you!!!

  4. LOL!! great post title ;o) I'll keep my fingers crossed that the stripping goes well (as well as can be expected). Best of luck!

  5. Hey Amanda! :) Thanks for your comment on my laundry room..I am SO excited to have the new appliances too! I can't tell you how much quicker my laundry gets done now..and I don't even dread it! lol
    I have taken down SO much wallpaper in my life it's not even I FEEL your pain! I use a steamer works really great and goes so much faster than anything else I've ever used.
    Can't wait to show you guys what I'm doing in the laundry's turning out SO cute!
    Have a great weekend!
