Sneak Peak

Well, my lovely readers the floor is soooo close to being done! I've tried hard to keep back the unfinished pictures to do a nice long progress/reveal post, but I can't stand it any longer. I've got to show you a little of what we've been working on so hard over the last few weeks. So with out further ado...

This little strip and

this little patch by the front door is all that remains to be done!
(that and putting in four more reducers...)

Justin did this hallway last night, and I think it looks awesome... we are sooo close!

While my hubby is working, I thought it would be fun to finish up the little patch by the front door to surprise him. This is what it looked like this morning.

I measured and cut two pieces of the laminate and laid them, but I wasn't sure if I needed to stagger the next pieces or if I should just lay long pieces to the doorway... so I had to call Justin and ask. He wasn't too excited about me using the jigsaw while I was home alone (and unsupervised), so I am going to finish this up tomorrow (supervised). I think I did a good job though... and I know I could have handled it on my own just fine, lol, but it's fine if he wants to baby me a bit :)

My next big inside project is going to be to remove all the nails from the trim (kick board), paint it, and replace it. I did a really clean job removing all the trim pieces, and yes I said and meant I did it. I'm pretty handy with a hammer and crowbar :)

And then I will be painting all my interior doors because they looked fine with the former reddish colored floor, but they are this awful goldish orange color with this new floor. It's not too pretty...

I don't know when I will be able to post new pictures, but I am determined to do so before I leave for vacation. (Georgia here I come!)


  1. thanks :) I REALLY need to get a finished picture up... they have been finished for over a month... but in my defense we just got internet at home last night. At least I don't have to wifi rough it anymore :)
