The floor and I have become one today. To refresh your memories...on my neverending kitchen project...the floor and ceiling are my last two hurdles. Do you remember WAY back in November when I went crazy and posted this? Apparently the contractor I called wasn't feeling that my ceiling was as imminent as I was....since he never showed up. Boo. After getting through the holidays, procrastinating, giving up hope that ANYONE would EVER put up my ceiling I just happened to run into the wife of our local drywaller (who I hadn't called yet)....she gave me his cell number, which I called the instant I got through the backdoor....he's coming out next week to take a look. Thank.You.Goodness. Please cross all your fingers and toes for me.
SOO...the floor is my last hurdle. This is the last part that I can do myself....and I'm determined to get it done promptly. I'm tired of looking at patches of sticky tile covered by mastik, covered by sheet vinyl. It's ugly and icky....and I just want it DONE.
Do you know where every crevice of your floor is? Pray that you never have to find out. ;-) This is SLOW work. I peel back the vinyl, pry up the tiles (in as large of pieces as it will come up...usually the size of a dime...I'm not kidding) When that is done I rub off the remaining adhesive with mineral spirits. I try not to think about how much is left!! It's an inch by inch process.
But for a reference point....this is how much is left. I have an extra scraper....any takers? ;-)
