Primarily my studio floor. There was ugly grey nylon carpet in this room (as there still is in my bedroom and library), and I hated it. So when Snowflake scratched the carpet so much she pulled it up at the corners, and I saw what was waiting for me underneath…. I couldn’t wait to get out the tool box!
These are a couple of before shots from shortly after I moved in… And yes I realise how messy it is! 😆
Once I had pulled up the carpet and the underlay, I had to get out a hammer and a wrecking bar to pull up the strips of wood covered with nails. And then pulling up the staples from the underlay. *sigh* At this point I wondered what I’d got myself into!
Then of course the next natural step was a massive Spring Clean (even though it’s Autumn). All the cupboards and shelves and boxes and drawers and moving furniture about. That pretty much took three days and I’ll admit I was exhausted. But I did spend Easter Monday painting in there and I really didn’t want to leave the room!
How great does it look?
