For example, a few weekends ago we decided to get rid of the carpet in the office. All I can say is - what a mess! The backing of the old carpet disintegrated and I had to vacuum up all this gritty rubber off the floor. Then I had to go over the floor with a Swiffer wet mop about 10 times before I felt that the floor was clean enough to roll out the new carpet that we purchased.

Prior to purchasing the rug, we had a company come in to remove the desk (see un-painted desk here) and stain the desk a dark espresso color. The desk really came out nice and the darker color gives the office a more updated look.

The next project that we would like to tackle is the front door. The door has gaps in the frame as well as a few cracks in the door which lets in bugs and dust. We have selected a door, but we just need to find a contractor and the time to spend at the house while the old door is removed and the new door is installed.
Stay tune for the next project!
