Do you ever begin a project and wonder why? Why did I EVER think this was a good idea?
What was I thinking?
Well, with all of my spare time last week I began this project.
Why? I don't know....boredom? Stupidity?....(that's more like it....ha ha!!!)
Anyway, this is my lovely bathroom floor.....(I do clean the floors but had just moved a cabinet out).
1970's flooring. It's been on the floor since it was built.
My bright idea was to peel all of the tile up because there are hard wood underneath (I did check).
So off to the store for a chemical. I bought a can and brought it home....I actually read directions and followed them (yes, I guess there is a first time for everything). It didn't work!!! I was so upset.
So I used a putty knife to peel things up piece by piece used the gun, melted the tar, listened to the fire alarm go off, and scraped, scraped, and scraped some more.....yuck!!!! It's horrible. After leaving a damp mop on the floor overnight (by mistake) I figured out plain ol water does the trick. Who knew?
I guess you live and learn.
I'm off to wet and scrape more floors....hopefully I'll see you soon!!!
