New House!

So we moved in this week on Tuesday. We were supposed to move in at 8am, but some unexpected events occurred and we couldn't move in until 6pm. What happened was the old managers' son broke his arm while they were moving and so that put a halt in things. It kinda sucked. We bought donuts and everything for the people that were going to help us move, but since we couldn't move until that night, Steve and I ended up eating almost all of them. Well, mostly me. I had like 4 or 5 donuts by the time Steve had had 2. I know. Horrible. But they were delicious. I am craving some cinnamon rolls right now. They sound so good. We or rather I, unpacked and put everything in some place on Wednesday. Just about everything anyways. I started my job a day early on Thursday and we have already had a white glove meeting on Friday and did some yard work on Saturday. Steve is having a hard time going to work now and then. He just wants to stay home and help me around the house. Or so he says. I am thinking he just wants to play some video games or something. I can't be sure though, there are a lot of things that need to be done. We need to paint the house, the nursery, clean the kitchen, tear down the wallpaper in the kitchen, replace it with something pretty looking, and do some handiwork around the house. I know, it's a lot to do. But I want the house looking perfect for our new arrival. The nursery and everything needs to be set up and painted soon. I would like it done before the baby comes so that it doesn't have to be done when he comes. I still need diapers. Tons of diapers. And wipes. So, if anyone feels the need, I wouldn't stop you from getting us those. Can you just put new wallpaper on top of old wallpaper? Or do you have to take down the old wallpaper before you put up the new? I will put up some pictures of my baby bump soon. I am just so busy all the time. I hope that my bump does get bigger so that people stop looking at me like I'm just fat instead of pregnant. Oh well. Have a great day and enjoy your summer while it lasts!

Yes, you can put new wallpaper on top of old wallpaper.

You can Hang wallpaper over wallpaper but it tends to not hold to the walls as well as hanging in on a bare surface. However, if you must, first paint over the old wallpaper with an oil-based paint. If you use acrylic the paper may bubble up. To make a perfectly smooth surface, mud the wall with drywall mud and then smooth by sanding. Finally, paint it again and then hang the paper.

Most of the time it is easier just to remove the old paper. See WallpaperHowTo.

Found that online. Hope it Helps. I still haven't had time to search through my paint samples yet. I will call you this weekend because I have a couple more questions for you. You should post pics of the new house on your blog. :)
