Today has been horrible. A silly little border took well over four hours with two peoples help to take down. The issue you ask? Whoever put up this border put it on top of still drying paint!
We ripped off the top part of the border with little issue and then wet the remaining paper and started scraping. If you look at the picture you will see blue paint closer to the ceiling, then it morphs into yellow. The paper came off the blue very easily but that was because it was older paint. The paper was a major struggle to get off the yellow. At one point I threatened to toss my putty knife through the window. Patience I do not have!
So… If you have visions of hanging stunning wallpaper running through your head be sure to put it up on WELL dried paint!
