What are you reading?

Hey, remember when you thought you could take a wall of wallpaper off in an evening? Eventually your hands were burned with steaming water and caked with glue, you were sitting on the floor completely defeated and your progress was this? Just a kind of a cool mish-mash of texture.


Instead of having something amazing and wild to post about with beautiful pictures, I wanted to find out what our readers are reading. Ever since Young House Love has called it quits, I’ve been wanting to find a new blog that shows house projects with progress. So on the days I want to rip out drywall just so I don’t have to peel wallpaper I can read their blog and feel like I did something, you know?

Here’s what blogs I’m currently reading:

Yellow Brick Home

Emily Henderson

Retro Renovation

Vintage Revivals

What are some of your favorites? Are you hanging out on Facebook forums? Chilling at thrift stores? And don’t worry: I’m going to show that wall who’s boss this weekend.

    I am not reading anything too interesting but that I would throw my wallpaper removal technique out there for you! I use fabric softener…the cheap kind. I mix it 50/50 with water and spray it on the wall. Let it sit for a while, make sure it doesn’t sit too long or it will dry out. Then peal and hope for the best. I have had good luck with it in the past. Just make sure that if you try it you get a fabric softener you can stand the smell of because it will be everywhere for a while! Good luck!

      Thanks so much Tracy! I’ve used that method once in the past and forgotten about it. The steamer worked well the last time but now it just won’t budge. This weekend our house will smell so clean 🙂
