Before I go too far into fixing the exterior of the Van Buren, I decided that I better get to work on removing all the old interior stuff.
Aside from the double layers of wall paper in a few rooms, this should be quick work, right? Well...
See this bathroom?
See how it looks like it's been painted?
All I need to do here is pry the toilet and towel rack off the wall, sand a little, and then repaint later.
...Turns out a previous owner originally used wallpaper, and then when someone redecorated, they just painted over the wallpaper. Found that out after the towel rack tore through some of it.
So that's 5 rooms I have to tear paper out of now...cool...
And it looks like I'm dealing with a few different types of glue. One is spray mount, which makes removing the wood floors surprisingly easy. Except for this floor;
Different glue. hmm...
This might take a while.
