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.
