Undecorating the floor

I recently made a comment about our needing to "undecorate the floor." And you thought I meant picking up the toys?

Well, I did mean that too! But we also decided that the thirty-year-old carpet in our front hall and running down to the bedrooms was Past the Term of Its Natural Life. So we spent an afternoon hauling it up, and Mr. Fixit, Grandpa Squirrel and the Squirrelings have put in several hours this week pulling up tackboards, puttying in holes, and shining it up.

Sorry only the third picture shows the nice hardwood that was under the carpet, but maybe we'll get a couple more when it's all done.

It's great that you don't even have to lay new floor! The wood looks nice. Isn't it fun to be able to rally the family to do the work. We are taking a great deal of satisfaction in our slow but sure work on our floors.
