Dodgy wallpaper

They say the dodgier the wallpaper, the nastier the horrors that may lurk beneath. And in the case of our living room, it was definitely true.

Underneath the lumpy palm trees, we found even grimmer wallpaper... and underneath THAT... masses and masses of crumbling, damp Victorian render, complete with horse hair (and some other much softer hair, which we prefer not to think about).

So, every last bit has to come off.
