The Office transformation... (part 1)
This is the photo of the bedroom that we will use as the office. There was paneling on one wall and part of the adjacent wall.
Freda removed the panelling, which was quite easy since they had just nailed small finishing nails into the drywall. Under that, we discovered wallpaper of some classic sports cars: Mustang convertible, Corvette fastback, Jaguar E-type, and a Valiant. A Valiant??? Go figure.
Of course, we stripped the wallpaper. This picture shows our friend Colette helping us out. The wallpaper came off very easily with just warm water applied with a sponge.
There was a very very bad drywall repair, so I cut out the section to repair it properly.
