Bye bye, little birdie!

For the past six and a half years we have been living with this little character on the walls of the master bathroom:

Not too bad? Well, definitely not our taste. On or two birds, I could handle. But when the entire bathroom looks like this..........

........ you might know why I finally decided to do something about it. So yesterday I started stripping wallpaper. Very tenacious stuff; it's taking a lot of time and effort. I figure the entire stripping process may take up to 2 weeks. Then we have to prepare the walls (which are in pretty bad shape underneath), prime and paint. A brighter color, of course. I'm thinking a pale shade of yellow or green. Can you imagine? We haven't even picked out the wall color yet. But it might be weeks until it actually comes to painting the walls. I'm sure we'll have it picked out be then. Right now it's spraying and scraping, spraying and scraping............ Ow, my aching back!

Stripping wallpaper is a tedious task! It makes me tired just thinking about it. Good luck! Can't wait to see the finished product.
