Apparently when this house was built they never planned to paint the kitchen or either bathroom. Once the wallpaper was gone we found that fact out. First thing was all the goop left over. Lots and lots of goop that was 40 years old. We could not get it off ourselves so we had to paint all the rooms with a primer. Mr. G and dad had a blast with that. They complained for a couple days of being light headed from all the paint fumes, but that has eventually subsided. After that was completed we noticed that the wall had lots of dips and grooves.. They hadn't even tried to make the wall smooth when they built it. We had to bring the guy back in who patched up our ceiling to patch up all the walls that had wallpapered originally. It took him 3 days, but the work is done and we are finally ready to paint.
