End of day one looked like this. Now, I've never had any work that was this extensive done in my house before and I must say -- the dust! It's driving me crazy! And they haven't even started sanding yet, which is the dusty part, right?
And look at this lino that was under the tile in the sun room. Removing the radiator covers revealed that the room was also painted bright aqua at one time -- can't you visualize the combo in it's heyday? (Oh there was a pink bathroom in this house too -- and the little eating room as we call it was once a shocking jade green!)
Speaking of paint colors -- I'm going insane trying to pick them out. Finally when Pete came home I snapped at him about the colors and he helped me pick them out -- in the dark -- while climbing over all the furniture crammed in the dining room. Thank goodness for him!
