You can see in the last picture all the chair rail and crown molding - that is on the other side of my kitchen as well, plus I have THREE doors with trim...all yet to do. Working on getting the wallpaper down before I start on the trim It's a LOT of work...especially for someone that has very little "free" time. But I've started it, so I won't stop now until I am done.

yardnut,

It looks great! Wow, that's going to be me in a few weeks. I can't wait for my white kitchen. Thanks for posting the pictures.

I'm nervous about this project, but seeing this gives me hope.

If I can do it, anyone can, LOL. It just takes patience...lots and lots of patience.

Looks good
Removing wallpaper is rarely fun When you can't remove all of the wallpaper paste or if you tear any of the drywall paper - you'll need to apply a coat of Zinnser's Gardz or any solvent base primer. That will lock down the edges of the torn paper and seal the adhesive.

Thanks marksr. My kitchen is so much brighter now; it feels completely different walking into it now. This has been a very motivating project - after wallpaper is down, and doors/trim/molding is painted, I am getting new countertops and floors - woot!
