The wallpaper took forever to remove. Granted, we were using a cheese knife to scrape it off the walls, real tools being unavailable to us during this pandemic time, but twenty five years on the walls, and perhaps a very strong glue, were also to blame.
In the end MrBP spent an entire Saturday removing the most stubborn portions. The walls underneath were a mess!
Finally after a month my Amazon order of a wallpaper removal kit (too little too late), sandpaper and paintbrushes arrived. You wouldn't know I'd just had a delivery from Hermes.ca I was so excited.
I spent a couple of hours sanding the walls before priming them with the Farrow & Ball mid-tone primer.

Look at the former wall colour!

The primer is finally going on here too.
Also that bunny plate is my favourite!
(We also replaced the refrigerator after it just went kaput and stopped working about a month ago. Due to Covid19 we had to bring the new fridge into the house and get rid of the old one by ourselves... we made Fred and Barney look like geniuses.)

I bought those at a Brocante in France.

I've been thinking over a post on my Home Uniform of dresses or a skirt, as well as some good frocks I found at Brooks Brothers a month or so ago. Stay tuned, and be well.
