Here's a shot to show you what I've been doing for the past weeks. First of all, you tear off all the old wallpaper. This takes such a long time!! Some parts don't come out easily and you need to spray over to make it easier. I cannot attend every single day to do those DIY works as I'm already busy with my online shops and sewing works, so things are so slow. What I found out is plastered wall looks much more bright even without any lights coming in. I didn't choose brightest color, though. And it looks so "chic". I just love the texture!! Here in Japan, you can buy the real plaster in a can. It's already mixed up with water, so all you have to do is just apply on the wall right after you open the can! I hear to mix up the plaster and water by yourself is not so difficult but you need to have a great muscle to do it!! heheheh:D
