As of today, we have had our house for exactly 1 week. There is no longer any carpet in our house!!! That was our first project as it stunk so badly. Mike and his Dad pulled most of it out by time I got there Wednesday and then I helped in 1 room. The office actually had the original carpet--blue shag! The worst room so far is the dining room. There was a layer of laminate under the carpet and that is proving to be a p-a-i-n in the you-know-what to remove! The next step is to pull out the laminate in the kitchen.
I picked out the paint colors on Saturday. Mike liked what I chose, so now I am looking for paint sales :) Now we plan to spend Saturday cleaning and then the fun (painting) will start. It's fun to see the progress already!!!
