Meanwhile, Bro and the boys stopped by to pick up the weight bench and weights that we've been storing for them, also in the basement. I helped them bring up the weights and bars. Then I moved all the furniture to one side of the basement and cleaned the floor. While the floor was drying, I took up each of the carpet tiles from the living room and brought them down to the basement. While Walker slept, I laid the carpet squares in his man-cave downstairs. Honestly, I would have loved nothing more than to haul that icky carpet out to the curb, but we have cement floors with peeling paint down there right now, so even icky carpet is an improvement.
Walker had to go to work Sunday night, so I had the house to myself while I primed and painted all that trim. While the first coat dried, I moved all the furniture back: sofa, loveseat, china hutch, end tables, entertainment center, TV, dining table, four chairs, and four bar stools. Did you know that if you put cardboard under the legs, even the heaviest furniture slides over carpet like sled runners on snow? Walker didn't. He still doesn't believe I moved all that furniture myself. I am woman, hear me roar! Yeah, right. My legs are bruised and every muscle in my body hurts. I know I will pay for this tomorrow ~
|Two - thirds done ~ well, with the first coat, anyway!|
