You know how we do a ton of DIY projects? And you know how most of the time I’m the one who is just helping? I usually paint, or do the clean up, but I never take on the whole project. This time I took on this project, and did the lion’s share, and I’m so stinking proud of myself! That’s not to say that Match didn’t do anything. He did a huge part, which was leveling out our subflooring. He also did the master bathroom floors. But the living room, dining room, hallway and Piglet’s bathroom? That was all me, baby! I wanted to do something myself, and I wanted to lighten Match’s load. With him working all the time and taking night classes twice a week for his apprenticeship, I didn’t need him tackling this too.
So here they are, my beautiful floors. I’m so happy with how they turned out! We chose vinyl plank flooring, because it is waterproof, scratch resistant, and very dog and kid friendly. The color is stony oak gray, and it goes so well with our decor.
Now of course I want to get a new gray couch to coordinate, and we are hoping to get new carpet in the spring. But I’m going to kick back for awhile. Our house was torn apart for a week, and we basically lived in utter chaos. It’s not something I want to repeat anytime soon, but the payoff was well worth it.
