Painting, Done. Carpeting, Tomorrow.
Steve just put away the last of the paint. It's Wednesday. In a few short hours, sometime between 8:00 a.m.--10:30 a.m., our carpeting will be installed in the living room, stairs, and upstairs hallway. Hallelujah. Steve and I are both exhausted, but happy to be having this project completed. It's been several months into the process. We would have also carpeted Steve's office, but there is beautiful oak wood underneath. It needs to be cleaned up, of course, but I couldn't bear to cover it up. The living room also has oak, but the wood is not in good shape and completely clashes with the pergo. I am confident about covering that up. We will use the extra carpeting from the floor in the office to make rugs to scatter in there and perhaps in the dining area, too. Special thanks to Steve's Dad for helping with carpet removal and our friend G. for assisting with taping the walls. ;)
