I love old farmhouse flooring- Harwood. Our farm house was not so lucky we had this awful brown and tan super cheap Berber carpet through out the upstairs. I knew under was hardwood flooring. I decided this weekend (Sat night) I could not take one more day of this. We have lived with it for 2- years.
One of the hardest thing I find now is when we do renovations projects only 1-person can work on a while the other is watching our little one. Our other house that we made fast progress because we both could tackle projects.
This time I got smart, I arranged a babysitter. Sunday at nap time I started ripping, cutting, hauling and pulling staples.
Under the carpet is the original floor wide boards but they are in bad shape with a beautiful array of multi colored paint-gray, green, red, peach not pretty and not refinshable. Eventually we will need to put new hardwood in. Till then the floors will look smashing with a coat of Arcadia White.
