We are moved. I can't say that we are settled but non-the-less, we are moved in. We have moved in to my dad's house for now while we figure out what to do with our house in Minnesota.
I have been SO busy the past 3 weeks scraping, painting and redecorating the basement of his house so we have a little apartment of our own.
This house has been in our family for 50 years. My grandparents built it in 1960 and it is full of their treasures. I am using as many as I can to give the room a retro look.
here is where we started...
I needed to get the sleeping area done first and work my way around the room. I moved everything out of the way and started ripping up carpet. I didn't care what was underneath I just knew this carpet needed to go.
This carpet may have been cool in 1970 but it has seen better days!
This is the floor I found when the carpet came up. I was EXCITED!!! I can work with this.
It definitely was not an easy project. This area took me 8 straight hours of scraping. I did have a supervisor making sure I did my job correctly :-)
and here is the first phase of my basement remodel...
Nice and clean!
On to phase 2...
