Katie's Destruction

I guess Katie didn't appreciate the fun trip we took to Idaho Falls. While we were gone she wanted to get out so bad she tore up the carpet around our front door. Most people would probably have been upset seeing 8 feet of carpet pulled up from the tack strip but I was thrilled. I've been wanting to get rid of the old carpet in our dining and living room to expose the wood floors. I've put it off because I wasn't sure what shape they would be in. I knew there were big chunks missing from the floor where there was once a wall making the dining room a bedroom.

About 7:00 last night I decided to take out the carpet in the dining room just to see how bad the floors were. Here is the result. Yikes the bottom of my table is dusty. Please don't judge!


I think they look pretty good . There was some damage under the piano where we think a closet used to be. Until I get a chance to patch it a rug disguises it just fine. Later this week I'll tackle the living room and the hallway. Hopefully there won't be too much damage. I eventually plan on sanding them down and staining them a different color. But for now I think it's livable.

There were alot of I's in this story. You sure someone else didn't help you with all this work. I mean did you really move the piano all by yourself. -Anonymous husband
