When we bought our first house, it definitely fell into the category of a fixer-upper. One of the first things we did was remove the sixties mod mirrored wallpaper. Yes, I said mirrored. Psychedelic, is the word that comes to mind. The removal was not without a few hitches, as the previous owner had applied the crazy paper directly to the unpainted drywall with super glue (or so it seemed). Attempting to pull it off, resulted in an unbelievable mess. I wish someone had explained the importance of using a good wallpaper 'sizing'.

Well, I've learned a thing or two in the ensuing years. Wallpapering is definitely an artform. We put up quite a bit of it in previous homes, and certainly made our share of mistakes. Our current house doesn't have any, and I'm considering giving it another go...

Especially, when you consider the possibilities inherent with the newer 'removable wallpaper'. That sounds like the ultimate 'good thing'.
