Another Reveal

I realized in the mess of removing walls and cleaning up 110 year old plaster I forgot to tell you what was under the ugly carpet in the Master Bed. I'll give you a hint, it looks bad but is really quite a good surprise.

Here's the corner reveal



Yeah, that's some pretty hideous laminate. Never fear though! In taking down the wall we discovered that the laminate hides a beautifully protected hardwood floor. Yay! We did some quick internet searching and found that a hair dryer and a putty knife are all you need to remove it! We've left it for now since it is basically a big protective sheet covering the floor but I can't wait to get it removed and see the beauty underneath. It almost makes up for finding that silly beam behind the bulk head.

Anyone else get some good news lately? I love good news, especially when it comes to the house!


  1. Such great news! I can't wait to see the wood floors!

  2. Awesome!! So happy to hear you had another nice surprise. Hope the renos are going exceptionally well!

  3. Yay for hardwoods! Great tip on using a hairdryer to pull up the laminate. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that it is an easy job.

  4. Woohoo! Yay for surprise hardwood! I wish we had been so lucky!
