Floor remodel

Crisis averted my camera was found, LOL!
So now on to more important things like projects. Me and my boyfriend bought our old farmhouse about 6 years ago and have yet to do anything to it expect carpet in 2 rooms and some painting (we did rip out a divider wall a couple years ago too). So anyway I decided it was time to pull up our nasty 70's brown shag carpet, it is disgusting and smells, unfortunately I didn't get a pic before I ripped out the main piece but here an idea in the back corner that I didn't rip up yet because of the step.

I know beautiful right, lol!
Okay so after ripping it up this is what we have underneath (keep in mind that I am still not sure what I was doing with the floor but just knew the carpet needed to go).
So all of the dots in the pic are from the dust from where I started to sand, and since I can't take the carpet out myself so it has been sitting there for 2 days waiting for boyfriend to help.

So this is what my floors look like, pretty crappy, so we will see what it looks like when it is finished. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I will post as we continue to do it.

  2. No suggestions. :-)Just wondering if you are going to refinish he wood floors. I did that years ago and wish I would have just laid laminate over the top. I look forward to your finished floors. happy to be your newest linky follower Hugs

  6. The plan at the moment is to refinish, neither one of us is a big fan of laminate floors so it's either refinish or tear out and put all new hardwood down. Carpet is not an option right now because of my animals (they destroy everything, but I love them!) I haven't had enough time to work on it but I have sanded down a few small areas and it doesn't look horrible so we will see.

  9. Wow - that is going to be a lot of work - but if you are ready for it - they could be lovely! (If you don't want to do all that sanding - and sanding - and sanding you might think about painting the floors and then putting a sealer on the floor - just an idea.)

    Found your blog via the blog hop and would love for you to come follow me back!

    Thanks and Hugs -
