The Study: Paper (mostly) peeled

December 12, 2008 at 8:05 pm | Posted in During, Our Study | 3 Comments

I *finally* peeled the last of the wall ceiling paper off of the ceiling the other night to reveal a lovely chalkboard green-colored ceiling.  Check it out:

hmmm.  Yes.

So, undoubtedly you’ve noticed that we’ve got a little problem on our hands.  Or a big problem.  I’m not sure, really.

The white patches above are places where previous owners have patched over the wallpaper.  They’re big, huge, poorly-done patches, and I could only scrape some of them off.

So, if someone (anyone!) wants to tell me what to do now, that would be great.  I’m currently leaning towards sanding them down to the level of the green ceiling and then painting over all of it with white ceiling paint and crossing my fingers that it won’t be noticeable.  But I may entertain other suggestions.

  2. some place to start….
