I'm sure you who sometimes spew your morning coffee with my post and become worried if I'm not here.. Sorry I didn't post because I've been playing carpenter. The last spot in this room to repair and it will be finished today. I have carpet chosen for its price not it's color. I had to like it of course but I shopped in the remnants not the sample section. Then I chose the perfect paint to go with the carpet.
I know y'all have been fooled into thinking I live in a mansion and everything is in tip top shape but it's not true. I have lots of work to do and sadly, some work I haven't done before.
These are my preferred tools for demolition but that power saw is wonderful when you're cutting a piece for the jigsaw puzzle that I call the floor. Last piece is cut and soon will be in place. Floor solid and steady for years to come. Note I wear safety boots too.
Ready for my strange colors? Are you sure? I couldn't wait to start painting so I tried a spot last night. The lodge has fake paneling unlike the main part of the house which has real wood on the walls.
Here it is...wet and scary.
I thought, Oh, no! No Trespassing pink!
When I viewed it this morning
I was very pleased.
I didn't know the color name.
I just took the carpet (50 cents a foot)
Funny name I chose...Jack Horner Plum
and here is the inexpensive carpet.
Not too shabby for an inexperienced non-carpenter.
I'm kinda proud of myself.
Back to painting.
