Wicked Wallpaper

"We got a great deal (read: old house, fixer upper) in a great neighborhood. Two bedrooms upstairs for our boys; the biggest one had paneling. We figured we could just remove it and paint the drywall. That was a big joke because there were five layers of wallpaper that had been glued and baked on over the course of 65 years. We tried to strip it but ended up damaging the drywall so badly we gutted it with the intention of bumping back the kneewalls. That was 26 months ago. Our youngest son sleeps in my husband's 'future' office and my hubby works in our fabulous dining room."
