#90 Rip up carpet in craft room

I thought we weren't going to finish today. I was still packing up the room (and sorting, lots of sorting) at lunchtime. I suppose the experience of taking up the carpet in the bedroom--and figuring out how to deal with the disintegrated rubber mat--paid dividends today. Armed with our dustpans (yes, the secret to taking up rubber mat that has stuck to the hardwood), we made quick work of the carpeting.

This floor is in the best condition of all the hardwood we've revealed so far. It's very exciting.

Good for you! My sewing room is probably even more messy now than the pictures I took in March when we were trying to clean it it out to let people sleep there. I hope you are going to keep that gorgeous hardwood floor and not cover it up. I miss our hardwood floors from our last house in California. Nevada houses are built on slabs and don't have hardwood floors. I hate marble flooring.

Goodbye green carpet; hello beautiful floors. I can't wait to see your room painted and re-assembled.

Thanks, everyone, for your wonderful comments. My hamstrings are screaming at me still (Tuesday!), and I'm going to need all the encouragement I can get.
