You might remember this room from our first “before” shots. What we knew at the time was that there were mysterious gross things stuck to the wall (which were a lot harder to remove than we expected!).
What we didn’t know when I first posted this photo was the depths of disgusting hiding under the carpet. You can see the stained carpet in this photo, and you can assume the worst from the color and nature of the stain. And you’d probably be right.
I can’t decide if the previous owners had locked their animals here and refused to clean the mess, or just mistaken this room for another bathroom? Because it’s not. It’s definitely not a bathroom.
We ripped out and replaced the nasty floorboards, ripped up and replaced the carpet, scraped the popcorn off the ceiling, added crown molding and a new light fixture, repainted everything, and installed new windows and window treatments.
Wait, don’t just skip through that paragraph. This was a lotta work! (And this was one of our EASIEST rooms to renovate!)
This is where it stands today:
- It is habitable.
- There is no visible or hidden human or animal excrement.
…and therefore it has met my standards for a guest room.
