I spent the day tearing out filthy ugly carpet from my guest room. I got a nice surprise that the ugly beetroot colored wallpaper is tearing right off--finally, a job that isn't twice as hard as I expected. I hope to start refinishing the floor soon and then about a week of painting. Hoping I didn't just jinx myself.
I tell you, this room is so dark and ugly, again I can't believe I have lived with it this long!
