Demo Day 1

Overall, Lucille appears to be in really good shape! Pics are on the Demo page…officially a member of the Demo Divas Club 😀

My goal for the day was to pull carpet, remove window treatments, and remove cabinet doors – mission accomplished! Sort of…didn’t make it to the bedroom, but not too shabby for 4.5 hrs work!

First things first….carpet MUST go! Oh…and the window coverings too…they’d seen brighter days, and like carpet they absorb yucky smells too…and it doesn’t matter how great a housekeeper you are – carpet traps dirt. See the dark stuff on the 3rd photo of the Demo page? DIRT. Other than that, she’s pretty clean and I am quite thankful!

Took me a bit to figure out how to get the valances down, but I got there…. I saved the headers for the shades – my initial thought was to know exact measurements….after pricing blinds, I may drag out the sewing machine & make roman shades – maybe I can use the headers to attach???? We shall see….

During Lucille’s full-body facelift she’ll be staying at Uncle Bob’s….storage facility that is…super close to the house thankfully – my little Civic isn’t exactly ideal for carting off materials, but it works!
