Thursday Thirteen #11
More Thursday Thirteen HERE
This weeks Thursday Thirteen is ALL ABOUT the looooooooooong journey to my FABULOUS new floor. A BIG thanks to my inlaws for "gettin' er dun" YAY!!
#1 Aug 29, 2007 Big Daddy decides to make Mamarazzi happy by starting the floor project. After a few falls (probably due to the awesome pattern of the peel and stick linoleum, causing dizziness) and wanting to open up the kitchen/dining/family room area we needed to tear out the odd platform (step) that was the dining area. We discovered the original floor AND another layer of ugly linoleum....and discovered it would be a much bigger project than we thought it would be.#2 August 30, 2007 our AC decided to die and leak all over the hallway so we ripped out the carpet, when it was replaced, thinking the new floor would go all the way down the hallway...lovely bare concrete (don't be jealous). #3 September 12, 2007 my dining table is still sitting in my living room and J and Emma enjoy chocolate fondue after giving each other make overs @ a sleep over#4 September 28, 2007 yep...still not much progress
so we still need to put in the baseboards and i think it will be doing bead board in the dining area. but for now i am just REALLY happy to have the ugly floors out and the concrete in the hallway covered...so i can wait for it to be totally perfect! the color is really pretty but doesn't show well in these pics...in the pics it looks kind of pink to me...it's not, pink may be my fave color but we limit the pink to Jordan's room. So YES it was worth the wait...i really love it!
