Where I stood, wallpaper archeologist

Old houses are a lot of work, so you’d better enjoy the little “finds”   These are my most recent.   The wallpaper in the living room is painted.

Under the painted wallpaper is this traditional ogee/diamond stuff.

Under that is this spotted maple leaf design.

Under the maple leaf stuff is this very cool squiggly design!     I love this stuff!

  1. We’re just using elbow grease and exploring, it’s mostly on good enough that we’ll paint over it again. I don’t know how old that paper is, the house is from about 1900,.I imagine the paper is sometime between then and 1920. The most we’ve ever found was seven layers of wallpaper.
