Another Project completed!

You know how you have been waiting and waiting for something and it feels like it will never get finished, well that's how this whole floor thing feels.

But it is finally over, complete!

So here are some pictures so you can fully appreciate my situation.

This was the kitchen floor, just your basic vinyl flooring, but it had started coming away from the wall, and bubbling up.


So once we decided on our flooring, we started ripping it up!!!

Believe it or not the linoleum wasn't so hard because it was only glued around the edges, however, the glue around the edge wasn't so easy.

And as luck would have it, we ended up having to rip up the sub flooring to level out the floor anyway, so we didn't waste that much energy on the glue situation anyway.

Once we finished ripping up the kitchen we moved on to the living room and hallway.


As you can see this area was carpeted.



Carpet sure does come up a lot easier than linoleum.  

It's also a whole lot nastier!!

Yuck!!

Look at those hard workers!


So this is how we lived until we decided which finish we were going with.

My first thought was to do a floor like Gina.

We both wanted something rustic looking, so once we were told about 
Wrenn Wood, we couldn't resist.




And we (he) worked, and worked.

Until he was finally finished!


And we love it!




I love the knots, and imperfections that make it look 
perfect for us.




Pardon the air hose, just wanted you to see 
how big an area we were doing here.


It was totally worth all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into it!

Linking up Here!!
