I came home to find my cat had been sick all over my bedroom carpet (and the bed). It looked like a vomit bomb had went off. Really horrible. I tried to clean it up, but it was really just a total loss and I ended up ripping all the carpet up. Underneath I found rough, unfinished wood that is really painful to walk on. I'd already planned to install all new floors this summer and I don't want to spend a lot of money on something I'm going to get rid of in a few months, but I need something down now. Not only is it unpleasant to walk on, it's also winter and I've noticed the temperature has dropped quite a bit in here since I pulled it up. What I need is something relatively cheap. Something I can put down myself in one evening and won't damage what's already there (such as it is). Something I can throw an area rug over to hold me until summer. And I am not very handy. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
