I am Woman, Hear Me Roar

Last night our expert renovator friends D&K (and their two charming moppets) came over for dinner. Naturally, I dragged them to the deconstructed master bathroom to ask their advice about the drywall-over-beadboard problem.

D, who is possibly the coolest woman on Planet Earth, dove right in with a crowbar and knocked out a big hunk of drywall. Apparently, my number one mistake has been treating the drywall too politely. I'm supposed to tear into it, not shake its hand and give it a kiss on the mildewy cheek.

So this weekend I'll give it another go - using D's example and the awesome advice from my blog readers - and see if I can make a little more progress.

Good luck! This house and the one we hope to buy have that terrible '70s fake wood paneling in the living rooms. What were these people thinking?

Kristen, you crack me up :) :) :)

You've got to give that stuff hell but do so while being very kind to your beadboard. This is probably why you have been so polite. I hope it goes quickly for you this weekend.

So funny, whenever I demo a room I think of that Helen Reddy song too!

I also like the WW2 slogan, "You can do it!" with Rosie the Riveter in tow.

Way to sock it to the srywall Kristen!
