Last month Mom and Dad went to the Dallas Quilt show. Mom has always done her sewing on the kitchen table but her new machine is too heavy for that old table. So she bought a new cabinet. She decided that the old carpet needed to go. Here is Mac on the old carpet.
They thought they could just pull up the old carpet, clean the tape off the tile and be done. They ask our sister bean to come over and help. As with all good plans
something unforeseen happens. The tape striped the top layer of the tile in some places and pulled up chunks in other places. So new plan! they pulled up the tile and started scrubbing the sticky residue from the floor.
This is what the kitchen floor looked like on Saturday night.
Here Kirby is protecting the boxes of new tile That Mom picked out.
Here is that tile! When sister bean left on Sunday evening, the laundry room and part of the pantry were not complete. Mom and Dad are good starters but not good finishers. Mom ask Dad to try and finish the project by the end of March. He did, on the 31st!
And this is the pantry floor.
This is the laundry room. These last two pictures are for Sister and Brother Bean!
