Pat and David

I am ashamed to say that the vibro tool that I bought is a King brand. That is an offshore cheaper brand. I must say that it works very well. I think it cost $60 and it came with blades. The blades do NO cut through screws. In fact, that is a sure way to require replacement blades. A package of replacement blades is $20. I went cheap as I bought this tool just for this job, but I have to admit that it is very usefull. King tends to copy other brands designs. I would buy this brand again.

Removed the wall paper yesterday. That was a big job, we plan on putting up paintable wallpaper. The twin beds were screwed to the outside walls so the screw holes have to be fixed and the paper replaced as you will now see the walls. I started building the smaller rear closet. I put the breaker that were under the bed on the pass side in the closet and the 12v panel on the drivers side in the closet.

Hmmm. Did you have to use a steamer to loosen the wall paper?


TIA,

No steamer. I bought a little tool $12, that you role over the wallpaper and it puts little pin holes through the vinyl wallpaper. Then you sponge wall paper stripper on the wallpaper. After a short time the vinyl peals off, but the brown paper back stays on the wall. You then sponge the stripper on the paper and it comes off rather easily after 10-15 mil of being soaked. then you sponge off the rest of the glue with the stripper. Took about 1 1/2 hrs to do the bedroom. It is messy, water in the floor from the sponge.

Fabric softner also works well for removing wallpaper, once a paper tiger has been used.

Default Wallpaper

I wallpapered the bedroom with paintable wallpaper that has a texture like sisal. I painted it and then had to redo the first piece of wallpaper, as there were bubbles in it. That is the white piece of wallpaper. I have to wait 24 hours before I can paint it. I figured that I would redo the piece as I would never be happy with the couple of small bubbles. It is a pain to fix now but would be a much bigger pain to fix later.
The picture in the shop is the closet wall that I am building. The picture is not that great, but the big opening is for the closet doors. I am reusing the original mirrored doors on the closet. I have one coat of finish on it and another one or two to go.

Awesome Peter, fill us in on the type of finish that you're applying (lacquer, urethane, brand, method of application, etc).
