As I type this, Stuperman is in his room
304.5 square feet of Laminate at .99cents a square foot ( Bargin)
300 Square feet of Ultra padded underlay at 30 bux per 50 square feet (Not bargin!)
So now all we have to do is rip out the base boards* wash em , paint them, rip out the carpet and underlay, lay the laminate, get all the door-end-y-stopper-trim-stuff put in, put the base boards back up and get rid of the trash. With three kids and two cats underfoot.
*When I pried off a baseboard, just to see how easy/hard it would be, I saw this:
Great! Joy! I am so Happy now! The
Wonder if I could just get a little thing of dark grey paint and touch up the walls where it will come off. Will that work? People??? Hello??? Fine, be like that!
Why did I assume this would be super easy? It didn't even cccur to me till today that we would have to remove the baseboards to lay the floor. Which means I didn't budget for new paint for the base boards, nor the time it would take to paint them. There are 52 seperate boards that must be cleaned and painted, for those of you keeping score at home. Last night I was super pumped about my new floors. Today I still want new floors but notsomuch the work that comes with it.
Oh and we are also trying to hide the fact that we are doing this from my inlaws who live Three Doors Down.
I might not have a lot of time to blog this
If anyone wants to come help......
