Behind The Pegboard Wall

When you start looking behind walls, you never know what you will find. Well, we mostly knew what was behind the pegboard wall in our laundry room. It was the back of the wet bar in our family room.

So when the bottom panel fell off, I decided that maybe it didn't need to go back. The pipes and studs are now partially exposed as well as the concrete subfloor. Or at least what I thought was subfloor. As I was preparing to do a little rearranging, I saw a speck of pink in the concrete.

Wanting to see where this pink was coming from, I grabbed my bag of rags and my apple cider vinegar cleaner. All it contains is cider vinegar diluted with a bit of water. But boy, did it work wonders on that floor! It was really dirty, but the acv took it right off with just a little bit of elbow grease and some old socks.

So here's what the original floor looks like. By the way, it's still there under the new vinyl.

Hey, that old flooring doesn't look too bad. What are you going to hang on your pegboard?
