Why I hate DIY projects

I have to make peace with this house: it could be a whole lot worse. Well, we have decided to replace the wallpaper in the kitchen with someone less stained and scarred.

And found more "patch jobs" by the previous owners. In their defense, what we have found so far behind the familiar "squishy areas" the drywall jobs-behind-covering this house is famous for is the remnants of an old intercom panel. I do not fault them for trying to cover this up. I do fault them for coving it up with what appears to be the cardboard backing of a legal pad of paper with crayon scribbles.

And we have only done one wall so far.
