Hi Livvy,

welcome to UHM.

I'd start at the top and work downwards.

How big is the house?

As long as no other work needs doing and it is just redecorating then it should not be too difficult. It becomes a nightmare though when you remove the wall paper and realise that all the walls in the house need replastering :cb

Hopefully your walls will be ok, there are some helpful people on here for when (if) you get stuck :wink:

Yeah,
Start one room at a time and turn the garage into your 'dirt' room.
All cutting mixing if you can be bothered is in the garage, it'll help reduce the mess, yes there will be mess, always is.

Ask here for tips or advice, they're a good bunch, strange but in their own way good.

Oh and that's not my bottom, either. :oops:
