Sometimes we have to get through the layers, so when we put up a fresh coat it will wear properly...

Terrific - wallpaper can hide a lifetime or more. Intriguing piece, for sure!

When we finally cleaned out the boys' room, after they left home, we pulled up the carpet and underneath were dozens of little yellow gun pellets.
