    Several people have remarked that hanging wallpaper together has caused more divorces than infidelity.

    I think you meant to say "Fan-Shmabulous"

I was dreading taking it down in the kitchen but it all pealed off beautifully in a matter of a couple hours. The baths were another story, they must have used some heavy duty glue in the baths which makes sense.
    Depends on what your walls are. Mine are rock-hard, 70 year old plaster rock.

    Much different to hang or remove wallpaper on, compared to dry wall.

    When I moved to the East coast as a kid my dad bought a house that was over 100 years old, every room in that place was wallpapered. I spent most of my formative years "restoring an historical fixer-upper". Learned how to plaster, paper and install plumbing and electric in a house didn't come with that stuff. Even re-sleeved the chimneys. Came from southern CA, back then the craze was wallpaper that was alternating patterns of foil and faux velvet, horrifying stuff.

    My wife used to have to drag me kicking and screaming to look at wallpaper but then we hit on a store that had an incredible inventory and a section of graphic arts paper that was unreal. Yeah, wallpaper can look tacky but the really good stuff installed the right way can be amazing. I couldn't decide how to dress up the front of my breakfast bar. I thought about tile, stone, paint etc. and then I saw a wallpaper that was stunning and matched the decor to a tee. My wife always said that when used just as an accent here and there it can be cheap, easy and can really make a room. She was right.

I did all the work myself, hung all the cherry cabinets, moved the dishwasher, put in an island, ran the electrical and topped it off with tumbled marble backsplash and granite.
