We started work on what will become our bedroom today.

Here's how it looked this morning. What is it about horizontal surfaces in unused rooms?

I am the girl who will try to reuse just about anything. But this carpet is completely beyond even me. I had hoped we could just pull it up and paint the floor. But...

Too many holes and varying levels. Sigh.

Still trying to do as little environmental damage as possible, we bought a carpet remnant. It's still new, and synthetic, but I think once it's at the remnant stage, it's getting close to being hauled off to the dump. So maybe I did some good?

Then I came home and had my nap.

Tomorrow, we paint!

I know you'll do grand things with this room-can't wait to see the process!

Thanks, Tara! I hope you won't be disappointed!
