Now, we are going to remove all the carpet in our house, and replace it with bamboo hardwood flooring. Even though our dear old house is 97 years old now, and one would expect there to be hardwood floors beneath the wall-to-wall, crying out to be restored, not so! Instead, we have old painted pine floors.
This morning, Itty Bitty and I removed the furniture from Sailor Boy's old room, tore out the carpet, pulled up the tack strip, and are now set to commence the painting part of the re-do. It might take me three weeks to pick out a colour...
...and another three weeks just to paint the radiator!
Incidently, Gibby Kitty is completely worn out, and is sleeping on top of my cutting mat. I just 'meowed' at him, and he gave me the most disgusted and condescending glare before slamming his eyes shut again.
