DD and I came home yesterday around noon to find this:
She was so surprised! We tore out the carpeting and got to work
Nine hours later it is all done except for the trim and transition pieces. Never having done this before, DH made a couple of goofs in the very beginning but once it was figured out it overall went pretty well. All the prep work to just get started and the cutting and measuring sure takes time, but it was so worth it!
Today we will finish it off and restore her room back. It was so funny as we were driving home yesterday she said to me she thought she'd rearrange her room that afternoon (she's always doing that) and now she can start with a clean slate. I'm ready to do the whole house with this (wink wink!).
