I don’t know about the rest of you but sometimes I get the uncontrollable urge to not leave well enough alone. Todays unbridled desire was related to the last thing about my house I can’t stand. The god awful linoleum floor.
The curiosity took over and I stopped the movie. Grabbing a few tool I thought I may need for the process I headed to the bar.
Right away I was able to find a separation in the floor between the kitchen and bar, under the door where most wouldn't ever notice. With nothing more then a fingernail I lifted a small piece and throwing caution to the wind I began to peel. Less then 5 minutes later I had a beautiful vintage tile floor before me.
I can only pray the rest of my kitchen looks this good. Just in case though I think I’ll wait a little to tackle the rest of the kitchen. I mean they must of had a reason to cover it. Somewhere lurking below is impending doom. I can feel it.
Not to be a Debbie downer, but the VCT you are uncovering is likely asbestos tile based on the age, patterining and size. . . . I do love the aesthetic of it though . . . Cheers - CTReplyDelete
Oh ya I pretty much guarantee it is asbestos based. There is a lot of it in the house. The foyer and hallway are tile and so is my finished basement. It's all in great shape so I'm choosing to not worry about it. Probably a foolish decision but sometimes you have to live dangerously. I do appreciate the warning/complement though. Thanks!Delete
