The wallpaper is now completely removed. I detest the color yellow and now I see yellow every time I walk into the kitchen. This is definitely great incentive for me to paint the room.
I still need to wash the walls and remove some of the glue residue. I am not washing down the walls until I finish sanding the trim and cabinets. "Work smarter not harder" is my motto. Why scrub the walls twice?
I finally feel a measure of satisfaction with the completion of that nasty job. Next task on the list is removing the horrible vinyl flooring.
