25 Pounds of Packing PaperYou and your newly wedded husband have just bought your first house. The sweet neighborhood with large shade trees and older homes with loads of character was exactly what you had in mind for starting out together. On your newlywed budget, however, you have a lot of updating to do, along with personal touches to make the house YOUR home. As you are shopping online to buy moving boxes to move from a one-bedroom apartment to a three-bedroom home, something catches your eye…packing paper. All moves require packing paper, but you have another idea brewing, outside of wrapping dishes and stemware and décor. The front hall of the new home is adorned with a less-than-lovely, dark floral-patterned wallpaper.
In your last walk-thru, you peeled back a corner only to find another layer of paper, followed by at least two more layers. Knowing what a job it is to scrape 60-year old wallpaper, you have elected to let it lie, and add another layer. But as you’ve been shopping for wall coverings, you’ve found the expense to be more than you can afford. You once saw in a popular decorating magazine, a woman who created an amazing space starting with wallpaper glue and butcher paper. The light bulb goes off…and you order from Uboxes.com, 25 pounds of packing paper, plus the boxes for moving and packing tape you’ll need for the move. In just a few short days your shipment arrives. Another day later, you are given the keys to your new home and the two of you get right to work preparing the little cottage for its’ new family. You can hardly wait to tackle the hallway. Piece by piece you rip and affix to the walls. Rip, glue, place; rip, glue, place. A days’ work and it’s done. Final touch – teabags…unsystematically, you stain over the new covering to give it an aged, always-been-there look. It’s a masterpiece! After all the moving boxes are unpacked, pictures are hung and candles are lit – you are finally home!
