The "Before" of the group, when the nastyass carpet was wearing thin

hallway'ette with nasty carpet

This is the hallway'ette that leads from the steps to the bathroom. Well... more like a shower room. I have no bath and that makes me sad.

too many staples in the carpet

Soooooo many carpet staples
"Safety First" was impossible

Is that carpet under carpet!?? It's like a carpet bonanza! Or laziness on someone's part.

demo day

Demo Day!!!

The "Peninsula" arm, where someone patched a giant hole with wall material. It's like a treasure hunt, if you consider garbage a treasure.

Wrenching the old wood framing off the stairs.
And yes. Yes, I did break a nail.

new wood steps

These are the two new wooden steps stained a very light gray. So far, so great

Steps are now in place and the "real work"

There are soooo many issues to be resolved: this one is the biggest, with the peninsula having been rebuilt and the unsmooth facing being smoothed.

photo of post-painted stair bases

Still deciding on colors for the stair bases ~ I change my mind often. Because I can.

A pop of coral pink inside the drawers carries the Florida + Hollywood + Hemingway theme into secret places

photo of the rebuilt peninsula

The peninsula is almost done; I'll probably paint some scaly, googly-eyed critter in the coral facing.
