Started a project that I’ve been wanting to do ,but I knew it would be a big job so I procrastinated for an entire year. We finally ripped up the nasty carpet in the dining room and living room and will put down vinyl tile . I painted the dining room last year. But we (I) still had to paint the living room and now we are working hard at preparing the subfloor so the tile will stick . That means removing all kinds of nails and mysterious substances from the plywood . Backbreaking work, and my hands hurt from pulling up staples and nails , but the reward will be worth it. We have done this in most of the other rooms in the house over the past few years. It’s a big pain because we have nowhere to put the furniture while we work. We just move it around . But tile is so much easier to clean!
Enjoy the Before photos!
Please say a prayer for us because we have a lot of work to do . Happy Friday!
