Yesterday I decided that I could not and would not live with the scary and mouse poop infested pantry in our new home any longer. So I put on some gloves and got to work. Here are some photos of my progress.
I started by peeling away layers of paint and old wallpaper. I really just focused on the parts that were already peeling or chipped.
Guided by the natural line of the pattern in the paper, I cut out strips to use for each shelf.
After the second coat of paint dried, I applied the cut out paper using spray adhesive. It worked beautifully!
