But I thought I’d just share what we’ve been working on lately.
Right after I posted about my entry way, we decided to rip out the carpet. The room had flooded during the winter, and we were worried about mold and all that…. so this is what it looks like now….
Eric has been working on scraping all the gunk from under the carpet, and he pulled out the old baseboards. Before we pulled up the carpet, I thought we would be able to paint the cement floor. It looks like we won’t be able to smooth them down without replacing the cement completely :p
Instead we’re just going to lay down a laminate/ linoleum that doesn’t require any adhesives. We haven’t decided between a wood or stone look… There are a lot of good options, and this will be much more durable in the winter when we have all our snowy-salty boots sitting out there. The carpet was really ugly :/
