Paint & Carpet

Leave a comment

This a long overdue update. There is finally fresh paint and new carpet in both bedrooms! It took me a few weeks to get all the painting done, but it’s finally finished and I can move on to other things.

Both bedrooms were carpeted, as well as the loft. I got really cheap in stock carpet that was actually on clearance, as well as the cheapest carpet pad. It cost just under $700. Not too bad for 3 rooms. And by the time it starts to show some wear, I hope to be able to put in fancy hardwoods everywhere. But in the meantime, it’s clean. And kiddos like playing on carpet anyway.

I was planning on installing the carpeting myself, but there would have been no cost savings after tool rental and a lot of time involved. Not to mention I might have messed it up because I’ve never done it before. Home Depot only charged $47 for the entire install (I guess they make their money selling the material instead). So I just removed the old stuff and kicked back while their installer did the hard work.

The third floor “crow’s nest” is also set for new carpeting on April 3rd. I just need to finish painting it and put in underlayment. Our friendly woodpecker pecked his way through the subfloor and made the room his new hangout. And so did a few hundred yellow jackets and ladybugs. More on that adventure in a future post…
