The last of the Carpet is out!

The long over due Reno -

Here are some slightly Before, during and After shots of the room. 
I forgot to take a before picture with all the furniture in the room of course.

Just after removing the furniture and a quick vacuum

Before we removed the carpet I painted an end table for Miranda
Might as well not make a mess on the new floor
and I couldn't do this in the garage as there was sawdust flying. 


Jason scrapping the caulking off the wall

This is an impressive picture as this is just after getting the 
carpet and pad out of the room. We were expecting the worst.
this was the room that Empire replaced and had spent all day
removing the prior flooring of cement board, screws and cement
covered in the cheap sticker flooring.  glad it was actually done so well 
and we didn't have to rent a scraping tool. We actually had more trouble in 
this room with the carpet tack strips. Jason refers to them as the blackberry 
bushes of the construction world. 

This picture is after we put down the OSB.
Grand-kids helped with the screws so that was nice.
Wish I had gotten a picture.

Our bedroom during construction:

The bed was a bit too high to enjoy the fireplace
It was interesting to sleep in the living room.
The neighbors have added a very bright light to their garage door
and our porch light was really bright too. We got some sleep though.
Kind of like being in an Air BNB 

Had to start in the middle of the room so that
 the planks matched up with the bathroom. 

Where we stopped on Wednesday night - We were beat.

The next morning we finished up the flooring


The other side of the room

Put the molding in, caulked and painted
(even did a few touch ups)
then the all important TV was put back up....

Next came the furniture...

The rug we bought for this room was too big so we repurposed
 the one from the living room. It works and doesn't clash 
with the bathroom rugs so I am ok. 
Now to shop for another rug for the living room .....

My side of the bed and Jason's prints from IKEA.
On the hunt for something different.
Kind of tired of New York City prints.
In the picture here it looks like its a lake with trees.
That would be fantastic.
Possibly found a landscape set just have to measure.

Also now looking for a new table under the TV and chair. 
The grand-kids are murder on furniture especially by a TV

It feels amazing to have the carpet gone and the room done.
I was so worried about what we would find under 
everything and so relieved that we didn't have more prep.
