Weekend Warrior!

Well it seems that I was a weekend warrior. I felt I was on one of those bob villa/ home edition makeover/ road house warrior (don't know if that is a real show), but it was a busy weekend. I completely stripped the 4 layers of stuck wallpaper to the master bath. The previous owners thought it would be sooooo much easier to just put layer upon layer upon layer of wallpaper everytime they got bored with the current pallet. Needless to say the job took approx. 20 hrs total this weekend. That includes stripping previous owners wallpaper, scrubbing excess glue on wall, prepping wall for paint (sanding, filling in holes), putting up a white coat of paint, and of course clean up. I did have some snags like taking off the towel bar and working around the toilet, but I'm glad it worked out. Total cost: $6 for 4 cups of coffee. I had all the tools and supplies, so I made it without a home depot/walmart trip. I enjoy home projects like that bc I also didn't think about money all weekend. Its a mindless refresher or it could have been the paint fumes. Now its back to the grind Monday and I'm in full financial swing. Updates on accounts coming later today...
