I may have mentioned once that my pop-culture references will be few and far between. Mostly because I don’t know much pop culture. But with today being Friday and all, this can’t go unreferenced. Watch the video, and prepare to be…3 minutes and 48 seconds older when it’s done.
We pulled down the ceiling, but still have to deal with all the wood framing. The biggest mess is all the fluffy insulation that comes down. The first section we pulled down, this came with it.
Who knows how long that’s been up there! I promise it was empty when it fell down–we’re not drinkers 🙂 We also need to pull up the rest of the particle board floor. The section that had carpet on it came up ok with just a pry bar. For the section with 2 layers of vinyl on it though, my husband got out the circular saw, cutting grids in the floor. Yeah, that’s just a little unnerving–taking a saw to your floor and prying up chunks of it!
On the list for tomorrow is a trip to the dump (to get rid of what we’ve pulled up, and down, already) and then use that space in the garage to pile up some more! Then we’ll finish up the floor, and I should probably start filling some wall holes, since we’ll be painting sometime after next weekend. That’s when the ceiling should be finished (oh yeah, I’ll have to paint that too!) and the doors and window will be replaced.
For something fun, how about some felt flowers I just whipped up. I found directions at Craft Snob
Here’s my version with 3 of them pinned to my shirt.
Oh yeah, we gettin’ down on Friday.
