I searched to see if there was a thread for BP but didn't find one. Sorry if this was covered elsewhere. BP is going through a $490 million renovation.

Itís pretty amazing that they can remove, restore, and rehang that wallpaper. When we bought our house we removed wallpaper from the dining room and it was a nightmare. Not the same, I know, but itís really cool that they can save it.

Slightly off topic, but hot water and fabric softener making removing wallpaper so much easier.... it also makes your house smell good.

In the end, I painted right over the wallpaper. It came out fine. You just have to set the nail heads where they have popped first.

A steam cleaner comes in very handy for wallpaper removal, along with a nice sharp putty knife.

I have the steam cleaner as I'm allergic to fragrances - it's great.

That said I do find it amazing what they are doing with the wallpaper at Buck House. It also clues people in on why refurbishment in any house of that size and vintage - where restoration is as important as renovation, are so costly.

It doesn't matter how old you get, buying snacks for a road trip should always look like an unsupervised 9-year-old was given $100.
