Patrick had a long weekend off work which is unusual so we got to work on some things around here. On Monday morning, Patrick began removing the carpet from the basement "playroom" while Owen and I ran to Lowes for some odds and ends. After lunch, my sister Caroline came over and we got to work painting the shelves from the basement while Owen napped.
They should be finished by this Friday!
This morning Owen and I shopped for carpet for the playroom and hardwood floors for the only remaining bedroom with carpet upstairs. We have a guy coming out tomorrow morning to measure. It feels good to be checking things off. Let phase 2 of the home renovations begin!
Phase 2 includes:
- Finish painting bookshelves
- Paint trim in living room (there isn't much left)
- Paint playroom
- Paint trim in playroom
- Paint doors
- New carpet in playroom
- Hardwood floors in guest bedroom
- Touch up trim/possibly paint guest room
Did anyone else spend labor day working up a sweat? Lowes sure was packed. I don't think we were the only ones getting some home projects done.
