The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:
Half of the kitchen was bare by the end of the day.

The retro red wallpaper had been covered by faux-woodgrain cabinets and paneling. The upper half of the walls and floor were golden yellow, sort of a '70s bumblebee-inspired kitchen.
The wallpaper, paneling and linoleum were torn out with bare hands in a total of 30 minutes. Really.

The bad:

OK, this is the most disgusting home-improvement project ever:

Tearing out plaster and lathe overhead in the bathroom.

Whacking out plaster and wood over your head while being showered with coal-like, nasty dirt. This is the payback for easy wallpaper removal.

The ugly:

Me afterward.
