The laundry room makeover- Part 2 (gut, paint, floor)

When I last mentioned the laundry room update we were prepping to tear out and start painting and that's just what we did!

Here you can see how simply removing the nasty shelves helped so much! (Hubby had already removed one wall of shelves in the first picture).

Just getting them down REALLY opened up the space!

Top secret way to remove wallpaper!

I have a confession... when we moved into this house I was pregnant and thought I needed to paint every room in the house all at once. By the time I painted babies room I was worn out. So when the FUGLY wallpaper border that was up would not come down with a simple tear, I did what every smart lazy person would do and bought a new wallpaper border and hung it right over the old. And it worked wonderfully... until now. (BTW, I had no problems with this method. It hung well overtop the old and you could not tell. Just putting that out there incase yall are lazy smart like I was.) Now it is time to paint the room again and the border would no longer work. It had to go!

The funny thing is, I know a pretty awesome top secret way to remove wallpaper. Well maybe it is not super top secret since there are a few internet results for it... but hey, I thought it was a top secret secret. Wanna know???
