What Lies Beneath

Please Excuse Me While I Have to Go Cry

I decided to go through with it. Today I pulled up the living room carpeting. This was it, the big moment, the Big Reveal.

I already had a preview of what lies beneath the hallway carpeting. With some relief I found the flooring there was in fine shape. Some cleaning and filling would be all it needed before refinishing. But I was really dreading what lurked under our living room. Now that the walls are freshly painted, it was time. I started peeling the old blue carpeting back, beginning at the front window.

The flooring was decidedly worse than what I'd hoped for...

This might be a worse nightmare than the bathroom...
