Shut the FLOOR UP!! 

November 10, 2016

Hi everyone and happy Monday!! I’m pretty glad last week is in the books and that today is a fresh start for us all.

Let’s get right to it though, I’ve been dying to share this post with you all for about 8 months now!!! Yes, 8 months!

If you have been following my post and Instagram you know that we have had some water issues. I’ll spare you the details, because well we would be here for days! Maybe I’ll share it in a post someday, but for now all you need to know is that we had water in our HVAC vents and now we don’t. Yay!

So here it is finally, the before and after of our floor, enjoy!

This was just a few hours after we closed on the house in FEBRUARY. We were so excited to start renovations. If we had only known the journey ahead….

Well the couch was delivered, but still no floor.

I tried to make it feel homey Ha!

Then by the grace of God we were installing our floor last weekend. Whew! About time! This girl was running low on patience.

We chose to install a hickory handscraped engineered hardwood.  The color is called smoked and has gray and brown tones that I just love! 

The day after the floor was laid I came home to the baseboard and trim installed. Talk about a sigh of relief along with my heart skipping a beat. To say I was happy would be an understatement.

We’ve decided the lazy boy can’t stay! It’s way too big!!


We love how the floor turned out! It looks better than I could have ever imagined, especially after those long months of waiting. However, I think we are both more excited about being able to go barefoot. Until this week we always had to have on shoes or slippers to walk around on the concrete. Yuck!

Coming home is finally relieving instead of stressful and that my friends is a true blessing.

Please feel free to ask questions or comment!

Until next time,
