This house has been here for 11 years with the same carpet. Typically I'm not sure that would be an issue, but when you live in the country, down a dirt road, on a hobby farm, with dogs that are allowed in and out, and 2 boys ... well ... the carpet can get rather ~ how should I say? Gross!!!
We have been wanting to replace the carpet with wood floors for some time now, but just never got around to it. It was on "the list" for this year though. And I am proud to show you the progress. As of yesterday the dining and living room are finished. Last night I moved all the furniture back. I can't stand when my house is out of order. The house just feels more cozy now with the wood floor. I'm all about cozy and I just love how it looks.
Friday my handyman starts on the boys rooms and the hallway. I am not looking forward to that mess, but it's also a smaller area square footage wise, so hopefully it won't take as long to complete.
So once the floors are done, the next thing I have on my "To Do" list is the back splash in the kitchen. What I want to do it pretty simple and inexpensive to do, and I think I can knock that out myself in half a day.
Off to install Rosetta Stone Latin for my son. Hoping that boy can knock out his foreign language requirement ASAP. It's getting down to the wire. He will be a Jr. this coming year. Nothing like waiting until the last minute huh?!?!
