First of all the conservatory still needs to be mudded, painted and trimmed.
Since, however, we’ve invited folks over for Thanksgiving I thought I might as well get busy in there. I had been holding off on removing the film from the new windows until the mudding and sanding were done because that just makes a dusty mess.
But the fall colors are so gorgeous and I want to show off the new windows so I pulled the rest of the protective film.
And I inserted the grilles.
I could look at this view all day.
While I was in the “get-‘er-done” mood I rolled out the cream colored carpet which ultimately will be used in this room. It has been used in our bedroom, our living room, and our dining room over the past 25 years. I think it was originally from Pottery Barn.
During the renovation it had become a dirty, stained, gross item. I wasn’t sure it would clean up.
Using a mixture of 1 tablespoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon Borax, 1/3 cup vinegar, a squirt of blue Dawn and hot water to fill a spray bottle.
I spritzed the entire bottle on the rug then used my old Bissell to rinse and soak up the water.
Not only do a have a decent looking rug for the conservatory I also have a super clean spot to lay out the living room curtain project.
And I ordered a rug pad.
Are you getting busy?
