Day 1 of DIY

We actually dilly dallied for awhile as to whether or not the lino-removal would be more hassle than it's worth... or potentially uncover something nasty. But Friday night we went down to the space for a celebratory champas and discovered that the masonite/lino sheets pull up like butter! So that very night we pulled them up within the space of an hour. Ahhh flooboards!





The next day we returned to commence the hard work - pulling up all the residual carpet staples.

Man - that job sucks.............I have fond (not) memories of pulling up staples out of my parents kitchen floor, about 1/3 the size I might add - OMG you girls are my heros!!!!

How the hell did you pull out the damn staples? We've just pulled up lino and masonite and there are hundreds of the things... don't know how we're going to do it...

Basically a lot of hard work and time spent on our hands and knees pulling them out individually! You can buy special rolling plyers for the task- don't try to do it without these!
