weekend transformation #1

This was my room on Friday night…

… and this is it now!

A lot happened in between, and there are still a few things left to finish before moving day on Thursday. But thanks to the amazing work of my dad and uncle, there’s a new hardwood laminate floor in my bedroom! Here’s the play-by-play:

7:30 am Saturday – Ours for the day, courtesy of Home Depot

9:00 am – Getting rid of the yucky carpet

11:00 am – Taking out the carpet staples

Laying the floorboards

Adding new baseboard molding

10:30 pm — done for the day

me and dad

2:00 pm Sunday – goodbye, chocolate brown

4:00 pm – hello, sea anenome

Also gone: the draperies and the closet doors. But keep your eyes out for them to reappear, repurposed, elsewhere in the house this summer.
