{Our Home Part 7} New Flooring --WOOT WOOT--

Alright first off go back and read the title and imagine me dancing and singing... That is how dang excited I am about this new flooring. The Hubbs has talked about this flooring for literally a year folks. He had this vision and it is finally coming to life. I love how that works out. He is doing everything himself, which to me makes him a super hero, but of course I think he is always a hero. I may even call him a FREAKING HERO at times.
Also the greatest part is we are paying cash for it all! Yep...How about another WOOT WOOT! All I can say is thank you Government. That tax check is being put to some good use. I also got a new vinyl machine, but that is another story entirely, which I will dish later.

So right now we are in the processing stage of the flooring. The wood is all laid throughout the living room, kitchen, and hallway. Sanding and staining still need to take place, but we are waiting for Spring Break. That is when the kids and I go on a mini vaca to stay with family and hubby works like a mad man on the floor. I am so dang excited! Oh wait I already mentioned that:)

So ready for the pictures I promised last week? Yep I am slow. Sorry guys.

Here is how everything progressed.

Oh but don't forget how it all started in the beginning....

now onto the progress


We got the littles into the action of tearing up the old floor


Me no makeup and all.
Just wanted to prove I did help....a bit
I was a great sweeper:)


Holes in the floor were fixed.
The people that lived here before left a bit of water damage.
Good thing Hubby knew how to fix it.


So grouse once the old flooring was pulled up.


A Primer was put on the bottom flooring to "seal it" as Hubby told me


He started out with 8 foot boards and 4 foot boards. He alternated them and went from there.



Yep that is lawn furniture. We are real classy


This provided much entertainment for the kids.


and here is how it is looking right now.
Remember the sanding and staining still needs to take place, but I am in love already.


I still need to paint the end tables and coffee tables black and I am on the lookout for the perfect rug to warm our toes


I love how open our house is. We try to keep it simple. Plenty of room for littles to run around and play.



See how I made the stools here.



Here is a look at my black cabinet Hubby built for me.
I still need to add a fabric curtain to hide the school supplies.


We sectioned off part of the living room for a mini office area too.

And there you have it. I can't wait to see how it will look once stained.Very excited to share all the projects we have in store over the next few months. Big plans we have! Big I tell ya!

Want to see the transformation our home has undergone.
See how it all began

  1. WOW! It looks Great! Can't wait to see the next step! Lot's of work- you guys rocked it! Nice!!

  2. luv it all! its fantastic how u made the curtains from sheets!i'm going to have to remember this when it comes time to work on those areas.

  3. The floors already look so good! I can't wait to see the finished product.

    I had a blank space to the right of my TV too and it took me forever to pick the right thing.

    I finally decided on three round mirrors running vertically. Anything I put there square looked so square next to the TV and door frame, and one round mirror looked odd. I have three smaller round mirrors stacked about 1 foot apart, and the top one is just above the TV height. Good luck!

  4. crack me up! I would be dancing and singing too! It already looks amazing! I can't wait to see the final product.

    I'm lovin' the new look of the blog by the way! Very cute!

  5. You are so talented!!! It looks beautiful! Nobody would ever believe what it looked like before. You have done an amazing job restoring it! This is a bench you will enjoy for many years to come!

  6. I am always so amazed at your projects!! This one is amazing!! The floor looks awesome :) I love this idea!
