There are a lot of things that need to do with our new house to really make it ours. Up near the top of the list was a new kitchen sink. Our old sink sucked.
Not only was it shallow, but what is the point of that second, even shallower basin on the left? I mean, we have a dishwasher so it’s not like we need that space to soak the dishes. It just makes the regular part of the sink tiny.
Aside from the sink, I also wanted to get rid of some wallpaper. Fortunately, our house is only wallpapered in the hallway and one of the bathrooms and the paper isn’t too offensive.
My mom came to visit for the weekend. She’s really good at home improvement stuff and seems to like doing it, so she offered to help. While my mom and I took wallpaper down, Jason worked on the sink.
And Murphy worked on being cute.
The wallpaper removal too much longer than I thought. Whoever put it up originally used a lot of paste. We found that the key to easy removal is to use a lot of water to get the walls wet. You really don’t even need the chemical wallpaper removal, just water.
We were tired and hungry and decided to order Chinese delivery. By chance, I found a really good Chinese place near my house. I think having a go-to Chinese restaurant is important! I’m much more likely to order Chinese delivery than pizza, although that happens too.
Back to the wallpaper I go. We’re almost done.
