First and foremost, did you see that Young House Love featured my kitchen on a Reader Redesign post?! Uhhh…and John called my kitchen “killer”. We can be friends now. Anyways, that was such a huge compliment and all of their readers have been super sweet with their comments. I was slightly worried I’d get some of the nasty brave-behind-their-keyboards mean girls commenting, but there’s been none of that. Phew! I’m a newby at this blog thing and probably don’t have the thick skin that experienced bloggers do. So thanks again, John & Sherry!
Soon enough I can call our downstairs FINISHED! Well, not really…I don’t ever feel finished, even when a room is all put together. BUT, what I mean is that we’re getting floors put in the rest of the downstairs on Monday! That will be the last big-ticket item for the downstairs.
Some people have asked why I’m ripping out existing floors to put new ones in. The short answer is that I don’t want 5 different types of flooring in 5 different rooms that are all attached to one another. This video may give you a better glimpse in to what I mean–you can see the funkiness of the 5 different floors.
[My loving husband just informed me that I broke the cardinal rule by not turning my phone horizontal to film the floors. I apologize to all those I offended by sharing a vertical video I've learned my lesson and it will not happen again!]
We bought some beautiful hardwoods at Floor & Decor last week for $3.49/sqft…and I completely forgot to get a picture!! Oops. They are Chinese Wormy Cherry–wormy–as in the tree had worms so there are worm-shaped grooves in the wood. Sounds weird; looks awesome.
If all goes as planned then I’ll be able to have a reveal post of the new floors sometime next week!!
