bobvilla.jpg The project continues…

This weekend we decided to get some solvent to take off the last of the carpet. It worked fairly well, but took a lot of elbow grease. After a mere 4 more hours, we appear to be done.

This is a picture of one side of the room that is done and the other that we still have to do.

Now here is the concrete with the solvent on it. I had the brilliant idea to lay a film over it to help it soak in. Okay, so I googled “removing carpet glue from concrete” and read it on someone’s website.

And here is the finished room (and by finished, I mean no where near done, but finished with the current step, as well as finished for this weekend).

We have to do a bunch of cleaning and preparing the concrete for staining so I truly don’t know when this thing will be done, but we will press on.

Think of my home improvement project as sort of a weekly mini series without the handsome actors, gratuitous sex and riveting plot line. Although maybe we’ll have some of that (handsome actors, I mean…Brad Pitt may swing by, you never know) in the coming weeks. Tune in next week…

  1. Ahhh the joys of home improvement. My DH just spent the last of his three weeks of leave putting base boards and door moldings up in our living room, kitchen, and bedrooms. After 2+ years our remodel is winding down. We would be closer to done but some how we miscounted on a couple of parts :)

  2. There is nothing sexier than a man in a tool belt. Take the kids to Grandmas and get busy! You already said that you’re feeling fat, right. Perhaps now is a great time to start working and at least practicing for Baby #3! At least you would have an excuse for snacking!

  3. I have to say that the pic of Bob Vila is a beautiful touch. As for what goodideamomma said…you know what burns calories…sex. Sex with toolbelts probably burns lots of calories.
