The Final Frontier

I am happy to say that I am on my last job of wallpaper removal for this home. This is our south hallway. The house was originally a two family home so we have two completely separate hallways and staircases. It's nice to have two sets of stairs but also a large waste of space too. Luckily the plaster and ceiling is in very good shape on this side of the house which is the "newer" side.When I removed the paper here I uncovered an old doorway which leads to the older side of the house. I am not sure how the rooms were configured long ago or even when the newer side was built. They plugged up the doorway with my favorite "beaver board". I am glad I only have that small section to deal with.
Here is my working platform to reach the walls above the stairwell. I try not to imagine catastrophe as I cling to dear life against the wall while I am working and remember not to step back or look down! I will finish this section quickly so that I can be on firmer ground once more.

Yikes Loribeth! Please don't fall!
I have done similar and cringe when I think back. All is well though.
How exciting it is the last bit of wallpaper! I have had moments of joy like that too.
Looking good!

That is so scarry! I don't think I could do it. But hey on a good note at least you can reach that part of your wall. I on the other hand can not.
