*ooops* Didn't quite make it. I really thought that we would put those stair treads down after dinner last night. It was easy enough to pull up the old carpets. The double-sided carpet tapes - not so much. After dealing with only two stairs, I knew that I needed to call in reinforcement. Enter my old friend -
Murphy's Oil Soap. Not my usual floor care product, but it did cut through and loosen that nasty adhesive. A thorough cleaning with a damp cloth and vinegar to remove the oil soap residue and we are ready to put the new treads down.
In other exciting (well at least to me) news.
Today I unpacked the last four boxes in the upstairs office. Up next, clear out the garage so we may park both of our vehicles in there. Hubby firmly believes that if you have a two car garage it should be used to park your two cars inside. I know this is weighing on him. The weather is great so it will be a perfect weekend project.
