The project continues…
This weekend we decided to get some solvent to take off the last of the carpet. It worked fairly well, but took a lot of elbow grease. After a mere 4 more hours, we appear to be done.
This is a picture of one side of the room that is done and the other that we still have to do.
Now here is the concrete with the solvent on it. I had the brilliant idea to lay a film over it to help it soak in. Okay, so I googled “removing carpet glue from concrete” and read it on someone’s website.
And here is the finished room (and by finished, I mean no where near done, but finished with the current step, as well as finished for this weekend).
We have to do a bunch of cleaning and preparing the concrete for staining so I truly don’t know when this thing will be done, but we will press on.
Think of my home improvement project as sort of a weekly mini series without the handsome actors, gratuitous sex and riveting plot line. Although maybe we’ll have some of that (handsome actors, I mean…Brad Pitt may swing by, you never know) in the coming weeks. Tune in next week…
