What will we find?

Oh I'm so excited! What will we find underneath this icky green rug? It's just like Christmas time, you unwrap it all and are surprised by what you find.

Well there's a thick mat underneath.





















There are no stains on it, so that bodes well for the wood underneath not being damaged. Keep your fingers crossed.




Ohhhhh, it's a thing of beauty!























Look at those gorgeous hardwoods. Why would anybody put a nasty green rug over such loveliness?



















Well, I've got tack strips all around the outside of the room to remove. I also have to remove all the staples where the former owner stapled down the mat under the rug. Thanks to B for using his muscle and ripping it all out. Back to work for me.
