Last week I began in earnest to work on getting furniture back in the living room. No, I’m not that far yet. Thanks for asking.
The list was:
I was all set to work my way around the rest of the room when Charlie got the bright idea to spackle a few more areas. More days of waiting for spackle to dry, sanding, wiping then (aaahh) I can paint.
I set up the rug shampooer and got busy on what may have been the filthiest rug ever. The wastewater was black (not muddy brown, black I tell you).
I pulled up all the old dirty rug pads, vacuumed the floor, dry-mopped the floor and Wet-Jet Swiffered it.
Without a rug pad I laid the rug out on the newly clean floor and pulled the blue chairs into the room.
Three out of four things on the list are finished:
Before I attack the trim I noticed a major piece of shoe molding is missing along the front wall which must be installed.
Then I’ll get to both cleaning and painting the baseboard trim. Not my favorite job.
Are you putting off some unsavory task?
