got a wild hair yesterday and pulled up all the carpet in our bedroom. This is something we have been wanting to do since we moved into the house several years ago, because we suspected there were hardwood floors underneath the carpet…and we were right! They need some work, but they are going to be really beautiful. There is about a foot and half border that is painted all the way around the room, so I am going to repaint that (still trying to decide on the color) and then we will polyurethane the middle.
It took FOREVER to pull all the staples last night, but we finally got them all pulled, swept, vacuumed, and mopped, so now it is livable until we can take a weekend to sand, paint, poly, sand, and poly again. 🙂 I love doing stuff to our house-makes me feel so productive!
Here are some “before” pictures-I will post the “after” when we finish!
The painted border and the old mantle….(I will just paint over the mantle when I paint the border)
They are going to be beautiful!
