My parents moved into their current house eleven years ago. They had painted other rooms in their house, but hadn't gotten to painting the kitchen.
And there was this half-wall with outdated, slightly ripped wallpaper in their kitchen.
For. Eleven. Years.
So last week while I was visiting, my mom had to leave for her book club and left Josh, my Aunt Becky (her sister), and me unattended. So with some peer pressure, I decided if I wrote on her wall with sharpie, my parents would finally take care of the issue.
I went with a "coupon" for a painting assistant. Me. (It was only fair.)
(This picture was taken after the wallpaper removal was underway. It wasn't quite this bad in the beginning.)
A few days after the scribbling incident, my parents found time to paint. :)
I helped, of course.
And we couldn't have gotten anything done without my lovely, canine assistant:
Scraping off wallpaper sucks.
Thankfully, my parents didn't get mad. I think they are happy that it finally got done.
My aunt says I should scribble on more walls.
Note: If you decide to scribble on your parent's walls, I am not responsible for any negative repercussions. Draw at your own risk.
