The things you do when inspired 🙂
Simplify 101 has inspired me to deep clean and I am all done. Following a link from the Simplify 101`s forum I ended up : here – The Apartment Therapy Blog. I have a hard time avoid challenges so I signed up for the daily challenge – to cure a room with style 🙂 Yeah – that`s my thing – not.
For those who know me – I really don`t care much where I spend my time or how it looks as long as I have what I need. But, there is one thing – my bedroom floor. I was looking through photos taken inside but I have deleted every photo showing the floor. It has a dirty pink look with some greenish tint. It is awful.
I was pretty sure the original floor from 1947 was underneath but you never know with old houses. I was brave last night and made a cut in a corner…
So – making a small cut was not possible so I made a big cut. Then I googled how to remove old vinyl. Jumping in with both feet – that`s me. Oh the horror stories I read online about all the work and the surprises I could find. Let`s just say there were moments – unhappy moments.
That hairy thing was hardboards nailed to the floor and glued at the seams. After one-third of the room done I spent the night sleeping like an angel – on a madras on the floor…
This floor was laid there to stay because it was a lot of nails. In my family we use to joke about our father`s love for nails – he used a lot of them when he built his home. The man who laid this floor must have been trained for the job the same year.
