Living Room Renovation: Part 2

I worked on the living room all afternoon yesterday. Shawn and I worked on it all evening until midnight. We found some surprises under the wallpaper. As the previous residents in the 1940's-1961 hung the wallpaper they wrote their names and dates on the walls. Amazing and very interesting. It's most likely that the wallpaper we're removing is from the 1961 papering. LOL Its almost makes us sad to paint over the names but they take up a good portions of walls. Shawn loves this type of thing.

We fixed a few spots were the plaster was pulled away from the back slats.
