Halfway into the first epic weekend and so far so good.
The carpet and pad is out:
The carpet tack strips and the base trim is out:
Things are cleaned up and waiting for the painting of the walls to commence:
A bit of a change with the shelves, I had originally planned on fixing these (one of these was the bookcase that originally started falling apart and started this whole makeover) and painting them white but as I moved them into the garage, I found they are so flimsy and loose that they are not long for this world. No matter what I do to patch them back together, I don’t think they are going to be worth the time and money to repurpose them.
They were cheap Ikea shelves. I don’t mean they were cheap because they are Ikea, I mean they were cheap even by Ikea standards. They were on super-clearance and cost $25 each so you can see why putting any money into them, if they aren’t going to hold up, it just isn’t worth it.
So quick plan adjustment and try to keep the momentum.
