So .... remember all the wall decals (murals) that are all over our new house? After speaking to neighbors, we learned that they were put on by the original owners of the house - "the sisters." Well, I've done some research on how to get rid of them - peel them off, cover them up, whatever.
We have to sand them off and retexture the walls-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s.
Ummmmm - no wonder the last owner decided not to deal with them....... There's a dozen of these hideous things all over the house! How are we supposed to get the retextured areas to match the rest of the space? Are we supposed to retexture the ENTIRE wall??? I mean ALL 12 WALLS????? One of the walls is almost 2 stories high!
I think I want to buy a different house.... Anyone out there looking to buy a 4 bedroom house with a yard just outside Pittsburgh?
We're NOT just gonna live with these horrible mural things. But this means that the rooms that should take just a day or so to paint are now gonna be huge projects. I'm tired just thinking about it. This definitely changes my mind as to which rooms get painted first.
Please - for the sanity of whoever buys YOUR house next - don't use these things - they seem to be almost as much work to get rid of as wallpaper. Oh - yeah, we have that too, don't we? This means that HALF of the rooms in this house now need "wall work" before we can even think of painting. Suddenly the project list for this house seems overwhelming.
Excuse me - I need to go bang my head against a wall and then decide more paint colors.....
