    Before carpet up..


    I've been wanting to start decorating my hall for some time. I started today and pulled the carpet up finally. I'm really pleased to find the original 1929 tiles all still in good condition. I also managed to get rid of all the extra coats and bits of things that seam to clutter up a hallway. Tomorrow i will start the huge job of preparing the walls and sanding the woodwork....all six panelled doors and the stair case....years of layer on layer of old lead paint, what fun!



    I might finally get this house decorated in time to start all over again!

    good luck to you on this one!

    It always makes me wonder why people would chuck a carpet down over nice original tiles and layer paint over paint overmore paint! min you, it could have been that awful chip board stuff!
