Changs vs. Wallpaper

One thing that I did not realize was going to be such a pain was removing wallpaper. Let's see, we had wallpaper in the dining room, foyer, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and a den. (A total of 7 rooms) And this wallpaper was not remotely nice at all. I kept making up stories of the previous owners and their conversations when they picked the designs because these designs are so tasteless!

What we used to remove the wallpaper:
We used a spray called DIF. It worked okay for wallpaper that wasn't so stuck to the wall. And it's very easy to use, but you do use a bottle quick!

But what worked the best was a steamer. We bought a steamer for wallpapers at Home Depot for $50 and it was so worth it. It's a lot quicker, but in my opinion it's easier to use when you have someone else helping you. And you can't beat the price if you are tackling a lot of walls!

Here are some images from some of our rooms!

This has been the hardest to take off. Bummer!
