Dining Room Before Before
Our first inside project is ripping up the blue carpet. We're about 98% sure we're going with an ebony stain on the floors underneath. Apparently, in the way back when, carpet was installed using tack strips running the entire perimeter of the room, with 100 rusty nails going in opposing directions per strip. It may very well be done that way in the present. I have never installed or torn up carpet. As Niki has had a tetanus shot more recently than I have (we really should have done a Tigertree 2nd location build out blog, that was one of our better injuries) she tackled most of the actual tearing up of the strips.
