And by killing ourselves, I mean we ripped up carpeting in the dining room and living room that had been there since prehistoric times. We painted over dark wood paneling and yellow fuzzy wallpaper.
We taped off, we primered, we painted. We discovered interesting flooring under the carpeting which we stripped, cleaned and then applied two coats of wax. We went without sleep---literally.
Here's a slide show of just our work on the dining room. I'll do the living room once I've regained my strength.
Just in case you missed it in the fast slide show, here's the finished product.
