Before and During…
One of the things I love the most about Big Daddy, is that we seem to get fed up with things around the same time. This means, when I’ve had enough with a certain situation and want to change things, he usually feels the same way.
This month? Big Daddy and I decided that we were tired of the downstairs flooring.
Big Daddy was over the entire thing. I was over the nasty, nasty carpet. And, since we were sick of it at the same time, we decided to do something about it.
An intial estimate to repalce all of our downstairs flooring came in at SEVENTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.
But, we talked some and decided that Big Daddy could live with the ceramic tile in the foyer, kitchen, powder room and laundry room and that we’d replace the carpet (nasty NASTY carpet) with hardwood. We found wood we liked a lot at a price we loved, so we ordered it and scheduled instalation.
AND because Big Daddy and I are on the same wave length in that regard, we decided that the office and dining room must be painted before the flooring was installed.
We had a pretty long tack list before the floor is installed because we’re tearing up the carpeting ourselves.
So, here we go. Before….
Baseboards pulled up to be reinstalled after the new flooring goes in in a little less than two weeks
Tacky vertical blind all gone and wall holes patched
No more nasty, nasty carpet!
Paint before touch ups..
What’s left? Paint touch ups, flooring, new window treatment and wall art installation.
Rolling up our sleeves to dig into Big Daddy’s office.
