The demolition process begins!
This is the carpet coming up in the living and dining rooms.
To the right is our front entry hall. More oak.
Look at all that oak. OOOO baby.
I love a good do-it-yourself project and very rarely become upset during the in between stages. Before starting any project I can clearly see the end result and it always helps keep me calm during the mayhem. With all that being said, when all the floors were pulled up and our boys were walking around in pajamas with their shoes on because it was unsafe to be barefoot, I felt like the worst mother in the world. I had removed the safe environment from my children.
As the new floors went down, their beauty erased those bad parenting feelings. Whew.
Next time, I will show you our
laying down of the new floors dreams coming true.
