All I could think was, "Please don't let Chompers come in here..". That was the last thing I needed, tiny paws covered in primer, tracking it all over the house as I chased him.. because surely he would think it was a game of "Im'ma get you". I shudder at the thought.
Anywhoo.. after cleaning up the primer.. I was able to remove the sticking bits with mineral spirits. I had this on hand to clean the brushes of the primer.. but it didn't work well for that. Actually, it didn't work at all. However,for removing the primer from the hardwood floors, it was perfect. YAY!
In addition, to working on the tedious built-ins... we decided to paint over the wallpaper. Reason being, 1) it's a non textured paper so should we decide to paint, it will be smooth.. 2) Trying to remove it would be a "nightmare" - that's a quote from a professional wallpaper-er. 3) Didn't want to deal with the expense of having to spackle the wall.
So far, so good. I'll keep you posted on how that turns out.

In more exciting news, I want to use this wallpaper. Isn't it pretty? I happened to find it while strolling through Lowe's.
I really love it and surprisingly, it doesn't overwhelm me.
