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!
