I spent most of the day yesterday tearing the carpet off the big stairs! It was a giant pain in the bum. Our garbage can is full of scraps now :) But, I am happy with the results!
I also found a fantastic (I am super hoping.) new entertainment console on craigslist! We are going to pick it up tonight. I have also been selling tons of stuff on craigslist, when you are a stay at home mom and working with a budget, you got to support your habit somehow!! I am rocking the garage sale this weekend!
Tools needed for carpet removal: Hammer, flat head screwdriver, utility knife, cat's claw (not sure if that is what it's really called-Mr. TSL calls it that.) needle nose plyers.
Here is what the stairs looked like before we moved in:
Pottery Barn Bellora Chandelier Knock-Off.
Looking good, Hollywood!!
Soon to look like this, but green:
