What a colorful home- rented or not. You've done a great job, and I will bet your baby is dizzy with delight at all the great items to look at.

But, the best way to get off any kind of wallpaper... get liquid fabric softener and a squirt bottle. It's 1/4 fabric softener to 3/4 water (a little stronger if it is really tough). Get a wallpaper scorer and score, then spray, sit 20 minutes, grab a putty knife and scrape.

Doesn't work? Concentrate it and a wait a bit longer. But it works. Every time. The fabric softener dissolves the glue.

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain. Climb on two by two, to be sure these days continue.

Took me a while to catch up with Craftster and now I feel a little creepy about looking at your kitchen.  I'm also in Utica but I don't think we've met. 

I love the look of your kitchen.  It is SO homey and comfortable.  And what a wonderful home for the Little One.

Great job and the rest of your hose will be just as great!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

I really love what you did with your kitchen, I have that fabric in the pink!  I am also in Central NY-- Syracuse, we may have many grey days and lots of snow in winter but our spring/summer and fall are the best--the same for Uticaplanet.  I also wanted to ask you about your "spice chest"-- I have a very small kitchen and have been at a loss where to put my herbs and spices, they are currently in a rubbermaid container next to my stove.  Unfortunately, that area is also where we have a 1970's era Jenn air grill.

Tell me, do you put them straight in the drawers or just in baggies in the drawers-- spill and tell me!

Your baby is beautiful.  I like that you have a past with big adventures.  I really love your Mary shrines.  I also had to redo my kitchen a few years ago but not as personalized as you did because we were trying to sell the house (it didn't sell, we gave up after 4 months and came home).

We had a lot of other work to do, I basically pretty much repainted my entire house.  The kitchen cabinets were a bear to do, I had to remove all the doors and hardware, scrape them down, sand, prime and paint.  It took forever.  Then I had to soak the hardware in solvent and scrub them with a metal brush, then I painted them with a spray enamel to match the paint.  Of course I lost one hinge...   My brother came up and plaster coated the walls because they turned out to be some strange particle board covered with an adhesive contact paper-- basically what they made modular homes with in the 1970's.  This was over every wall and the cupboards were nailed on top of it so I couldn't really tear it down.  They had gaps by the corners and stuff.  I still have some air bubbles where I could not get all the contact paper coating off.  Today it looks a little different.  I have a new dishwasher (white) and stove which is also white.   I also have pictures on the walls.  We are working on the basement now so things are in flux.

I really love what you did and that you have picked bright fun colors for your living space.

My greatest job is to seek joy.
Be honest, be funky, be true and be fabulous!

Your kitchen looks  i.n.n.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.l.e
If it were mine, I'd never leave my house . . . I'm feeling inspired just by looking at the pictures  Wink
Fantastic color choices & I'm in <3 with those curtains and the Dia de Los Muertos theme in the window. 
Great job, lady!
