more family room progress

Our marathon DIY family room makeover finally has some more updates. Handyman used his Memorial Day time off to get some more work done in here.

The ceiling is painted.
The trim is all painted.
The walls are all painted.
And the old carpet, padding, and nail tack strips are removed.

The room is now ready for new flooring.

To lower our disposal costs, Handyman cut up the carpeting according to our town's bulk item removal criteria. We also purchased another Bagster.

Of course, our weekend did include its share of marshmallow roasting, firepit corn popping, yard clean-up, and swimming.

How did you spend your Memorial Day?

  4. That's a lot of change. It's already prettier. I saw the picture of your Cape Cod and I think your home is beautiful.
