Floored: Part 1

Two weekends ago we laid new flooring in our master bedroom - it looks amazing!!! More photos to come soon of the completely put together bedroom.

Step 1: Load most of the bedroom into the living room. The rest is loaded into the garage (pics of that to come soon too- you are going to die!)

Step 2: Rip up the old nasty carpet that has seen WAY better days. Notice that nasty row of dust bunnies against the wall where our bed used to be. Rip up the padding. Sweep up a ginormous mound of silt from under the padding.

Step 3: Lay the new flooring - keep shooing the doggies away that just want to help and see what all the commotion is about. Hubby had a pretty good system - he set up his saw right outside the window, took the screen out and just stepped into the backyard every time he had to make a cut.

Step 4: Finish the floor, replace base boards, move all furniture back in, admire our beautiful new bedroom, lay on the couch with sore knees, take a bunch of ibuprofen and go to bed.

Step 5: Coming soon! Pictures of the brand new bedroom!!!
