We've started a new Do-It-Yourself project.
I'm so excited! Just think...we're mere weeks away from hiring a professional to fix whatever damage we manage to cause:)
Kicking off the project: Completely re-doing the master closet. It's a small, walk-in closet that has never been painted and had the original builder's carpet still installed. Needless to say, it was looking very sad and worn.
We had to remove all the shelving unit brackets, paint the ceiling, paint the walls and install a new floor. Everything is done and looks great, except the floor. Actually, we're just about to tackle that tonight. *fingers crossed*
We're installing a floating, laminate floor that looks a whole lot like dark wood. It's completely scratch resistant and should look really nice. (Can't get it wet, though. At all.) We have pretty much no experience installing a floor, so it will be a learning experience. You Tube videos helped us visualize the steps, so we think we're ready. I thought starting with the closet would be easy. It's 56 sq. feet and only has one a/c vent and one threshold to the bathroom. However, the smallness of the space, is already making it difficult. We have to make a lot of cuts.
Hey. We put the "labor" in Labor Day.
