I didn't take any before pictures of the loungeroom, there really wasn't a lot to tell. Other than a pile of junk inside the front door, which incorporated all the 'stuff' that was removed from other spaces as I cleaned them out, the space was fairly innocuous. I was cheeky though, and waited until after I had the carpets cleaned.
Beige carpets in a townhouse are the bain of my existence. Seriously, who carpets a dining room? Having the downstairs tiled is an idea that is becoming more attractive. :-)
This is the last of the downstairs that needs my attention, we're moving upstairs tomorrow. :-)
