Shabby [Mar. 12th, 2018|09:53 am]
Tony Grist
We've neglected this house- and never done more than basic repairs- because we have always thought we were simply passing through- and we grudged spending money on improvements the next owner would almost certainly rip out. We were mistaken. This May we'll have been living here five years...

It was shabby when we moved in; it's even shabbier now. No wonder our wealthy neighbour thinks it's over-priced...

I've just glanced round our main living space- which is currently covered in indeterminately patterned and all-but colourless paper- and thought I'd like to paint it pink.

Or purple...

Or orange...

Paint it whatever color you like, but for heaven's sake strip the wallpaper first, or you will be very very sorry.

Nothing is ever straightforward. If I strip the paper I'm quite likely to find the wall underneath leads replastering.

Nothing is ever straightforward, and you are probably correct that the plaster may need work. But I am sure it will look fabulous if you do remove the wallpaper and do any plaster fixes.
