The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Wallpaper Steamer Looking for a Home, Good or Otherwise

I need money for paint more than I need a wallpaper steamer. This steamer is roughly one year old and has only been used for one wallpaper stripping project. I'm sorry that it looks so unforgivably grungy in this picture, but I was too tired and lazy to clean it off last night. I do promise to give it a proper cleaning before I ship it off to you.

Here is link to it a Lowe's. It gets good customer reviews, and I don't have any complaints about it. Sorry, I just can't bring myself to wax poetically over it. I mean, it's just a wallpaper steamer and I hate all things wallpaper out of principle (I'd rather did post holes). Now a heat gun or amber shellac would be an entirely different story.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I'd take $15 for it or your best offer. I'd recommend USPS priority shipping for it ($8.10). If you are interested, leave a comment here or email me at thedevilqueen(at)hotmail(dot)com.

Unsolicited Comments from Me! :

Okay, so I work at Lowe's and had a gentleman come in not long ago pretty upset because he couldn't get the wallpaper off of his walls. He had tried all of the products and methods suggested but nothing was working. I suggested the steamer (the model that you have) and he purchased it with some trepidation. About a week later he came in, all smiles, and said that the steamer solved his problem. So.....if anyone is having any problem or wants to make the miserable task of wallpaper removal more simple, the steamer might be a good idea.
Just my two cents.

With the amount of wallpaper I have to remove in my house, I think I might really need that... considering I have oh, three full rooms, two hallways, and ceilings full of layered wallpaper to remove... do you take paypal?

It came in the mail yesterday! I haven't had a chance to use it yet (I didn't get home until late) but I am going to see about using it today... I'll post pictures on my blog if I do. :)

Thanks again!
