kitchen wallpaper like this was popular? I really hope it still isn't.
This was underneath the current wallpaper (stripes) - and the current wallpaper in the kitchen was put up just before I bought my house in late 2005. Wallpaper from the 40's or 50's? I remember seeing this type of pattern when I was a youngster - thank heavens not in my parents houses. If everything in my kitchen was retro decorated, it might be acceptable.
I have started peeling/scraping the portion of paper over the counter/sink/stove area. The other 3 walls are good and the paper is not peeling off. It's too late to try and re-paste this peeling part. This area, alas, gets all the steam from the sink, stove and our coffeemakers (we have 2 - his and mine). So it is getting painted instead, in a slight off-white color to reflect light better, right over the original wallpaper. It is that board you bought (or buy) already papered.

In other news: I won a Kindle HD in the Casita Club Member Appreciation Drawing that the webmaster Eric has. I received it last Thursday and am so proud of myself at how fast I am taking to it. Tonight, my friend Mary is going to teach me about Skype. I downloaded a free book and have started reading it. I haven't found the set of games I downloaded too. Am really not much of a game player on my laptop, much prefer on the bigger screen PC my housemate has so playing on the 7" Kindle could be a challenge for me.
Ta, ta - off to work in the kitchen some more.
