Floor Love

I never thought it could be possible, but it is.  I’m in love with my floors.  They are officially done (minus the quarter round and radiator covers-both winter projects).


Our initial tour through the house.  This carpet was the FIRST thing to go when we took possession.  I didn’t even want to walk on it with my shoes on.


After moving in.  Painted subfloor and a giant rug to hide it.

And now:


I know! Right?  Gorgeous.  I am in love with the stain and the difference and uniqueness in each board.  Want to know the best part?  We were able to get $11 sq ft solid hickory hardwood for just $1.49 sq ft.  Deal of the century!!


A super old shot right after moving in.




And now for picture overload.  (The floors are all the same throughout the main level but the lighting and my lack of camera skills make it look really different in certain rooms.)

And now on to the backyard where Josh is in the middle of constructing a new modern playset.  The kids won’t let this project take long purely for the fact that we had to take down the old set and there is nothing to do in the backyard.  Can’t wait for the end result-it’s gonna be awesome!
