The Beauty Around Us

A Busy Day

This past Sunday (April 9th) was a busy day.   We completed two major projects.

Bob completed the first project on his own.  He opened our picnic pavilion (removing and putting away the four tarp sides). The pavilion interior still needs to be swept and the furniture cleaned. That is a task for me for another day.

We both worked on the second project.  We removed the large area rug (approximate size 11’x12′) in our bedroom, which entailed moving most everything, except the dresser and bookcase and broken-apart bed, OUT of the bedroom!

Here is a brief history of this area rug:

We purchased the rug, which was a carpet remnant that was 12’x12′ bound on all four sides, on April 16, 2005. We purchased the area rug for our living room floor.  On July 13, 2005 we had the area rug resized/rebounded to 12’x11′ for our bedroom. We decided to buy wall-to-wall carpeting for the living room. The area rug was placed in our bedroom on August 24. 2005 after Bob had laid down padding (tacking it to the floor) and a friend Angie had painted the bedroom walls.

The bedroom was filthy! Dust everywhere! We cleaned the windows, inside and out. The rug, which we vacuumed before removing it from the room, was FULL of thick dust bunnies, We swept the bare floor, walls, window blinds and the furniture. We need to buy furnish polish, so the furniture will be dusted again AND polished in the near future. There was padding underneath the carpet, which had been stapled to the floor. Bob did a great job removing the staples. The wood floor that was underneath the area rug looks very nice. Returning to a bare floor will make cleaning the bedroom much easier, especially underneath the bed and other furniture.

This picture was taken before the rug was removed but after the wardrobe, chest of drawers and nightstand, along with lots of miscellaneous stuff, had been removed from the room. The bed had been torn apart as well.

We rolled up the carpet and exited it out of the room, via a window.

This picture was taken after the carpet was removed and furniture has been returned to room.

We are giving the area rug to Bob’s daughter, Stacey. She will make good use of it.
