Magic Carpet?

Only magically disgusting. But now it is gone. It had a good long life. I am pretty sure this carpet was original to the remodel that added the back of the house, which the old owners told us happened in 1984. Twenty eight years of grim gone!

No that is not weird colored concrete, it is dirt. Yuck.

What's next? Well I need to remove all the tack strips around the edge and then rent a polisher from a concrete place and then stain it. Add my new-oh-so-pretty wool rug and pull all the furniture back in place. Hopefully, I can accomplish this all before the family reunion brunch I am hosting in mid-January. Better hop to.


  1. Isn't it horrifying how much dirt sifts down through carpet? Let me know if I can help.

  2. Looks like the carpet in my house! Kudos to you for doing something about yours!!

  3. Woo hoo! You just keeping going and going with the house projects!

  4. I want to see the new wool rug!!! Good job Britt!
