Last week we finally removed the laminate flooring in our spare bedroom (You can read more about it here).
You know how desperate I was to rip it all out, well, I have a bit of a confession to make… I may have gotten just a tiny bit carried away. Ever so slightly…
Until yesterday, this is what our hallway looked like.
We already restored the staircase a while ago (read more about it here), but all of our efforts are really let down by the rest of the hallway.
The walls are covered in flacking Artex and the laminate flooring has definitely seen better days.
Now, after a few hours of work removing the side cover strips,
ripping up the laminate panels and
removing the underlay
we’ve gone from our dirty laminate flooring to even dirtier floorboards.
I admit, it’s not much of an improvement, but at least it’s a start. I wonder what Jan will say when he gets home. Last time when I painted the whole hallway white (it used to be a really awful brown), he didn’t even notice!
Have you ever worked on a project and no one noticed a difference? In our flooring removal madness, we’ve actually taken another room to pieces, too. Can you guess what we’ve done?
