I was going to do a post on what we found under the disgusting carpets at the new house. I can’t remember if I told you that the last people to live in the house were three college-age boys… Think about that for a moment and then you’ll know why the carpets had to go.
There are great wood floors under the carpets, and they will be sanded and then stained and varnished. I want to wait to see what they look like before I decide what to stain them.
I would have shown you pictures of the floors after I spent about five hours today pulling up all of the hundreds of staples left from the carpets, but I left my camera at the other house.
