Day Two: Demolition

So, remember that ugly corner unit in the dining room? Yeah, that thing. Hideous. So we decided to take it out!

Here it is disappearing – Thaddeus and Lela went at it with crowbars but it turns out it just popped right off!

Behind the corner unit, we found out that the previous owners had painted the walls… so the original (awful) wallpaper was still back there. Okay, no problem, we wanted to repaint anyway!

BUT.. the owners had also added texture to the wall when they painted. Of course, there was no texture where the corner unit had been, so… time to remove the texture! Thaddeus went at it with a sander, and got a little dusty in the process…
