Rather than remove the wallpaper, I just primed over it and painted the walls and the ceiling 'linen.' I am making curtains and a duvet cover out of the brown houndstooth fabric shown here (click and scroll down a little) and finally the chandelier will get hung next week.
Also getting painted is an armoire. It was given to me (YEH) and I am painting it black. Just got started on it here with the primer that is gray.
Next I will glue some wooden wreaths to the doors and paint it all black.
