Seeing how much the kids love their very own little sledding hill has helped confirm we are in the right place. The outside playing they do here was just not possible at our other place. And since I am an anti-screens mom, that's a good thing!
My kitchen floor is coming up next! Right now its white speckled tiles, with spots taken out for where walls used to be and paint from earlier in the year. It actually doesn't look awful in pictures, but its really pretty bad.
We wanted to go with a "wood floor" and from a stack of samples, I narrowed it down to two. Originally I wanted to go really dark because we have white cabinets and stainless appliances, but then we put in dark cabinets and my thoughts on it changed. I still wanted dark, but it had to not clash with the dark cabinets.
These were my two choices, neither in stock and we're trying to get it installed before Christmas. After much debate, I made a decision to order it. I was SO happy when I got notification that it was going to be delivered to our house, days ahead of schedule!
In store, the floor was $2.57, but if I ordered it online, it was $1.79....makes no sense.
In this picture, they look quite similar, but trust me, they are SO different. :) I didn't consult with Avery before I placed my order, but after-the-fact, she gave me her opinion and chose the one I did....phew!
Some "befores" of my kitchen, because my flooring guy has promised the new one will be installed this week! Its going to make such a difference.
I've also started picking at hanging some things. I'm afraid of the commitment a screw hole requires, so it takes me a while. :)
He just loves to work. Seeks it out even.
And the tool room is getting cleared out to hopefully get worked on. This means I unloaded quite a few boxes that were in the basement to make room for those tools. Its good to be getting that kind of thing done.
Love you, Shaun...thanks for all you do!!
