DIF wallpaper stripper by Zinsser and this awesome heavy duty scraper that completely changed our lives! Thank you so much extremely helpful and knowledgeable person at Home Depot! Have any of you guys experienced a difference in knowledge between your different home improvement stores? I like both of their products and they are comparably priced, but this may be the difference that pushes us over the edge.
Zinsser 1,2,3 primer since it is bonding (my new favorite thing) to increase the odds and coverage of the previously gluey walls. It worked well and went on very thickly. I intentionally primed the seams between the wall and the trim, though the trim had been painted a year ago, because the wall paper was so old that the trim was laid on top of it and I wanted a cleaner finish.
Valspar Riverbed's Edge. We fell in love with this color when we lived in a condo in Knoxville and used it in the living room. My only regret is that I didn't tint the primer. It is such a dark color that it would have been very helpful. I didn't, due to the fact that I was priming trim as well and at the time didn't want to add another step. I was initially going to go without taping and try to free hand, but then my helpful husband taped for me before I got to my second coat.
-build/buy built in bookshelf system for the wall to the left of the chair right of the window
-build/buy oversized open desk, stain in mineral green
-hang some vintage plant photos
-create a mini entry/mudroom (primary one still to go with back door)
-figure out some window treatments
and eventually the furniture in this room will be recovered and repurposed either to this room or to different ones. I am sure I have more, but why inundate this with minor details.
