How I Spent the Weekend






This weekend we repainted the kitchen and put down a new floor.

I am tired.

cool! What kind of floor is that? I need to redo our floor but I think there are several layers to remove though.

Wow! I'm in awe. That floor is beautiful (and the kids are pretty fabulous too!)

The floor is made up of those peel-and-stick linoleum squares--so it was not expensive, less than $100--but actually does look (and feel) like wood.

A couple of the edges do look like a poet put them in, but I am pretty pleased with how easy this was to do.

It took approximately 6 hours of fairly steady work.

Wow, it seems like the way to go because a big piece of linoleum is too overwhelming for me as a beginner. But I think I could handle the squares, because if you mess up you can always use another square.
I like your choice too, with pets and kids, it doesn't show the dirt as much as my white floor! haha!

You appear to have some small helpers here, Greg!

I just called Marge's Donut Den and ordered a shirt. Ask for Becky. 50/50 poly/cotton, "they don't shrink." 616-532-7413.

Yeah! I went to Home Depot to look around and found those squares, they sure have changed from the one's I remember. They look like real tile or wood. amazing! I think I am going to just put it on top of the stuff I have already. I can use a big deep connector to connect the wood floors to the kitchen floor. Eventually I will become a step! lol
Plus I bought some pet resistant screens to replace mine with, never done it before, but I have seen it done, and the lady told me how in the store. There is nothing like a handy type women with a tool belt and all. haha!
