I’m not a fan of carpet. I have decided…it’s just gross. My husband and I have pulled up some of the nastiest stuff from the houses that we’ve redone. No matter how often carpet is vacuumed…it just holds a lot of dirt.
Recently my daughter and son-in-law began looking at houses to buy. One of the houses that they really like, has a lot of potential. The one drawback is the flooring. All of it is in horrible condition, and they know that they’ll be on a tight budget. I told my daughter, “we could paint the floors!” I’ve done this several times in houses that I’ve lived in, and I love them. Painted floors are some of the most charming additions to a home.
