Renovation progress!!

The wallpaper in the room of the "wallpaper that will not die" - it's finally dead. Unfortunately, so are most of the baseboards and molding... some of it was barely held on to the walls, and the molding around the window cracked when we were stripping wallpaper - because there was wallpaper underneath it.

However, now that we're past all that, we've patched and sanded the walls, measured & cut new molding, and today we primed the room for paint! Three walls will need a second coat of primer before we're confident enough to paint. But it's exciting to make forward progress - we are no longer just ripping things down, and it's starting to look better instead of worse :)
