We have reached a major landmark in the wallpaper stripping part of our project.  If we’re honest there is still loads and loads more to do but I think we need to enjoy the moment and mark this stage.  As we’ve mentioned, the staircase to the top floor has a huge wall that is over 5m tall in places and is now completely woodchip/wallpaper free.

I can’t take much credit as The Boyfriend is the one who did all the hard work and after we treated ourselves to a fancy new ladder the job suddenly became much more achievable.  I could see The Boyfriend was getting tired so once the wallpaper was higher than I could reach my main role was just keeping him occupied so he didn’t get tired and fall off.

About katerenovates

Hello and welcome to Kate Renovates - a blog about my attempts at renovation. The Husband and I have now been living in our house for four years and changes are being made slowly. It's an unloved Victorian townhouse that had been converted into two flats. Armed with a little bit of know-how and bags of enthusiasm, we have turned it back into one house and are transforming it into our home. Many of the original features remain but the flats had been rented out and so none of the rooms were in great shape. Luckily, it has a fully functioning kitchen and we recently finished the new bathroom and so things are getting more and more comfortable all the time. We're learning as we go and sharing our ups (and downs) on here as we try (fingers crossed) to bring the house back to life. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog or any tips you may have on our house project, so to contact me, please email
