ding dong the green carpet is gone!
what green carpet?
the nasty green carpet.
ding dong the nasty green carpet is goooone!
ugh! i can't even tell you how big the happy dance the boyfriend and i have been doing is.
the nasty, pilled, stained Andes mint green carpet that has covered our
ENTIRE FIRST FLOOR
has been ripped out and disposed of.
here are some bad, yellow, before pictures from when we had just moved in:
note the big window in the wall and the grody carpet...
and here are some progress pictures:
jan. 5th: wall down. tree up.
jan. 12th: i spy with my little eye... a cute kitty! and no more carpet!
linoleum! with asbestos! i know you're jealous...
jan. 14: railing gone.
jan. 15th: flooring going in! no more paneling :)
today: living and dining rooms done! hallway being finished as i type.
i can't even begin to tell you how lucky we feel to be able to
make these changes to our home.
it can be stressful, like rip-each-others-hair-out-i'm-going-to-beat-him stressful
but at the end of the day when it's just us two,
all stresses melt and everything is worth it.
2012: we're off to a great start <3
