Floor project continues

It was too dark and I was too tired last night to take pictures of the flooring progress. Here's a look at all the prep we did on Sunday.

First of all, I think carpet padding is even more gross than carpet. It's like a fabric petri dish.

Thanks for the tidy glue job, builders.

Can you see the dirt in the picture below? Let me just put it out there that I have a Dyson. This was under carpet that was vacuumed with a Dyson for over a year.

I was actually better at ripping up the track strips than my boyfriend. Two hard taps with a hammer on this tool was all it took.

Then came the chaos of moving furniture.

I actually had a jigsaw puzzle style image in my head of how my furniture would have to be placed to empty out the living room. I'm happy to say I was mostly correct about where things would go. This is just the "in progress" shot. It didn't look this bad when we were done.

Here's the entire set of pictures:


  1. I couldn't agree more, carpet padding CREEPS ME OUT!

  2. Ugh. We have to do this same thing soon and I'm not looking forward to it.
