It’s not going to do it itself pt. 1 (cont.)

Sorry for such a late night/early morning post but here it is. Due to our wonderfully crappy Pacific Northwest weather I didn’t take up the carpet until today. Not nearly finished with what I have planned to do I’m very happy with the progress that was made today by myself and my handy helper (pictured). There will be plenty more to come as this project continues but Ithought it would be nice to give a quick update. Good night to all and to all a good night.

It’s not going to do it itself pt. I

The joys of summer break are without end and this summer for me the joys will include getting some much needed work done in the house. There is a whole laundry list of things that I would like to do so I’ve decided to start with the easier tasks and work from there. As such first on the chopping block are the stairs. The carpet is worn out at best and impossible to keep clean, not to mention the fact that at least 2 fur friends that I know of have used them for a potty or a marking spot (yeah, gross) so sometime between today and saturday the carpet will be a memory. I’ll post after pics 🙂 Happy Thursday

The chairs…pt. 2

So my sis and I were finally able to really take a good look at the chairs. The final verdict you ask??? This is probably a job better left for a professional or at least some one more skilled than the two of us. I believe I will take my sisters advice and the next stretch of nice weather I will take them outside strip off all 3 (yes 3) layers of progressively horrible upholstery and let the wood breathe and dry out. Once we get down to the bones we may decide that we can indeed do this ourselves ( which would thrill me beyond words) if not well…….they will still get the love and attention they require. Will post more as we go along 🙂
p.s. we’ve determined the bottom layer of upholstery to be from the 50’s but its in horrible shape which is kind of sad because it’s by far the nicest looking of the 3 layers.
