Crazy Woman and the Hot Mess!
This is not pretty friends...take a deep breath and walk with me...
These are the stairs to our finished basement...the first half of them.
Here is the landing and the rest of the stairs leading down to the basement foyer.
More lovely yes?
Here is the basement foyer and my one cat Snowbell...she looks about as
thrilled as I am currently with the state of things.
That's what I call a hot mess folks...state of un-doneness...in limbo...in between project mess!
I have been wanting to rid this area of cream berber carpet for YEARS...cream carpet with teens and 8 animals...NUTSY I tell ya! It was always dirty looking even 10 mins after steam cleaning it ugh!
We didn't choose it, it was already in when we bought the house half finished. But there has always been something else to put $$ towards or do elsewhere you know. One of THOSE kinda things!
Until Suzanne got fed up one day after cleaning it and a cat promptly went down and PUKED, yeah 8 animals ain't pretty folks I tell ya! Some days I yell and scream WHYYYYY and then I see their cute faces and remember. BUT for a moment I want to chase them all out of the house immediately or put them in a bubble so they can't touch anything!
One pile of old carpet and pad...I'm sure trash guys weren't thrilled with me today!
So I started ripping carpet like a woman gone mad! I'm pretty sure I was muttering and cussing while doing this as NONE of the animals were around...and they are nosy lil' butts...but they were SCARED..I had crazy woman face on and they KNOW to stay far, far away ;)
Then the hubster came home and the look on his face...well it was just priceless.
He says "sooooo did you get in a fight with the stairs and carpet or what?" ahahaha...I said "oh yeah and I FINALLY won". I think I won...will let you know when I'm all done!
So he took it upon himself to finish the nasty job for me yesterday morning...love him!
Saved me my pain in my back that's for sure.
Sooooo do I have a plan...puh-leeze...of course I do (cue hubby's scared face).
It involves a sander and some other fun supplies...so you have to wait to see what I'm doing.
Hope to have it complete in 2 weeks...that is my goal anywho. And that includes repainting the hallways in a shade just a hair lighter, repainting trim and caulking and hanging new photos along with the stair fix...lots to do...sighhhhh..but I know I will love it when its done yes????
Until then we live with the hot mess ;)
Ever get sooooo fed up with something you just charge and start ripping or reorganizing right that moment?? I've had many of those moments lately!
