As you know, over here at the Little House On The Corner, we’re constantly up to our eyeballs in projects. Whilst it’s exciting to see changes and progress happening (we can’t wait to share the huge project we’ve been working on later this week), a large amount of the jobs on our to-do list are much smaller and less exciting. Sorting out our doorstep is one of those jobs.
Originally the step had been covered with a sheet of stainless steel, which covered the join between the laminate flooring in the hallway and the doorstep.
Now that we’ve removed the laminate flooring and sanded the floor, the step is a bit higher than the hallway floorboards.
Lucky for us, it’s an easy problem to solve, as there is a thick layer of mortar under the stainless steel.
After just a few minutes of chiselling, we managed to remove the already loose mortar.
After making sure the area is dirt and dust free, we painted the step with black doorstep paint.
When we eventually get a new porch, we’ll have to rethink the doorstep situation, as we’d like the floor of the new porch to be at the same level as the floor of the hallway. But for now, it’s definitely an improvement, even if it’s completely uneven.
Pop back later, when we’ll be revealing what the huge project is that we’ve been working on!
