Makeover......part 2.

This was the next project, the hallway. We ripped up the carpet and starting installing a new Bruce floor. We went with real hardwood since that is what we had in our entry way and they luckily they still make the same color and style.

Here is the first phase from the entry way to the living room.

Another view.

After the quarter round install.

Down the hallway to the girls rooms.

Post the final pics soon.

Makeover......part 1.

After about 9 years at our house we decided it was time to do some stuff we'd been really wanting to do for awhile. Other circumstances kinda forced our hand but here is what we've done so far . So we stained all the bedrooms concrete after pulling up the carpet, can't really explain what is under carpet but trust me it is an awakening. The color we used was coffee and here is some photo's of our progress. We also ripped all the hallway carpet up and put down more wood in the high traffic area. So here is the skinny on what's up.

Here is the supplies. Well the supplies I had to purchase anyway. Labor of course was free.

This is what left after the carpet was pulled up and the concrete got scrubbed with just water. That took all of the texture overspray off. The stripper was used on all the paint over spray. That was pain to take up.

Here is the final before the TSP wash which opens the pores of the concrete up to absorb the stain.
This is half sprayed on and half painted on. We liked the painted so we went with that, but this is for Ryan so she can get an idea of the difference. There was too much grey for us, so we decided to go with something a little darker since the walls of our bedroom are light.

This is the look we preferred. Getting close to being finished here. I will post the final pics after the baseboards are painted and the room is back together.
