When we bought our house there was lovely brownish pinkish carpet throughout with the exception of laminate floors in the bathroom and kitchen. My husband pulled up all the carpet and I rolled around sitting on his skateboard pulling out the staples with pliers. The skateboard idea was great and I highly recommend it. Saved my back and knees. The wood floors underneath were in decent shape and looked nice once they were refinished but we were left with baseboards that look like this in many areas.
Lots of gaps to be filled with my cutting skills.
They are filling in nicely though. Pay no mind to the dirty floors please. Some paint to touch it up and I think it will look pretty nice! It is amazing to me what these little things do for a house. Such a small thing really but makes it looks soooo much more finished.
I have completed about 3% of the house thus far. Perhaps I won't be feeling so proud and peppy as it drags on but at this moment I have to tell you I'm pretty psyched. Isn't it nice when you do something you were pretty sure you would stink at?
