It's done now though. Here are some pictures. First a before picture or two:
And here's how it looks now:
It looks a little yellower in the pictures than it does in person. It's so clean and fresh and nice. It was a lot more work than I had anticipated, but I'm so glad it's done. Hooray! I'm not sure when, after that experience, we'll get to the wallpaper in the guest bedroom. Possibly not until kid #2 is on the way. Who knows. Maybe we'll feel ambitious in a couple months and tackle that one. It can't be as bad. Even if the walls are equally beat up, it is much smaller. And the wallpaper is normal stuff, not horrible hay embedded ugliness.
