The carpet ripping up continues. We still have the den and the stairs to go and I'm hoping that the rain forecasted for the weekend will help us get the job finished. A combination of sunny days when no one wants to be inside working and soccer, which is taking over our lives, our week day evenings and our Saturdays has seriously stretched the project out. But in the bedrooms upstairs it's done. Yay! Thank goodness too because every time we had the wood stove cranking Evelyn's room smelled like pet birds.
So now the question is what to do with it. Paint? Leave it splotchy? Cover with rugs? I've been experimenting with aging wood which does a good job of covering the darker splotches which makes me think some light sanding to take off the worst of the lighter spots and then aging it might work. I'm undecided. What do you think?
On a related note, I'm kind of loving this chalkboard wall in the bedroom. I don't think Will will go for it and I'm not sure I could live with it forever, but it might be fun for a while.
