My friend Shannon over at Anythingology painted her floor.
It looks awesome.
My carpet is 11 years old.
Plus we have this lovely dog!
And loves to lay on the carpet.
I have been thinking about ripping up my carpet and following in Shannon's footsteps.
My husband was afraid it would be a little echoey because we have
large vaulted ceilings.
But, I decided to go for it! Friday my mom and I ripped up the carpet,
the tack strip, and hauled the carpet and padding out to the garage.
(and yes it is a little echoey)
Yesterday afternoon Shannon and I sanded the concrete.
Here is the view just before we got started.
This is what the kids were doing out back while we sanded!
The shop vac we later discovered had a rip in the bag so the dust
was not being contained well at all.
Here are some pictures after the dust settled.
All entries from that room to the rest of the house were covered in
plastic to try and contain the dust.
It worked for the most part.
If you look on the left of the picture below you can see my dark wood floors
which are gray with dust.
Ellie is at preschool!!
Excited about phase two painting!!
