Another project on the horizon .......

You are probably wondering what this is (besides a messy garage):



It's the new floors for the kids bedroom and the guest bedroom:



We have a place here in town that sells flooring VERY VERY cheap. It is normally knock off of Shaw or Armstrong flooring. I did NOT want oak, but I walked up to this, fell in love and guess what, it's OAK! I brought it home and laid it right next to the walnut we already have in the office and dining room and you can hardly tell the difference. It's the 5" plank too. LOVE!! When we retiled our bathroom, we got all the tile there for CHEAP (Travertine at $1.79/sq ft - 18x18 = CHEAP) so anyway, they were having a MASSIVE sale this weekend for Memorial Day. We knew this would be the time to get the flooring for the kids bedrooms. They REALLY need new floors in there - they currently have laminate that is destroyed (we had a toilet leak and 2 inches of water resting in their rooms .... not good). SO we got this for insanely cheap, so cheap that we decided to get enough for the guest bedroom as well. The labor would be WAY more than what we paid for it. ALSO, the guy told Chad that it was easy to lay and he could probably do it himself (guy obviously doesn't know Chad) BUT our neighbor, who happened to be outside when Chad pulled up with all the flooring, offered to get Chad started on it and said "It is SO easy to put down" ~ I also have a couple friends that have offered to help, so we'll see ....... SO since we know we're here for a while, we want to go ahead and get rolling on this. Harold - I know you read this - aren't you glad you aren't here NOW!?! Course, you and my Dad could supervise if you were!! ~ it will probably get done after Chad gets back from Nashville, so I'll make sure to post pictures!

sounds great! It is pretty easy to install. We did our kitchen a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! I'm jealous that you get to put new floors in though... I'm sure they will look great!

Thanks for stopping by! I love hardwood floors and we are going to install them in our living room soon. Too bad we don't have a place to get cheap flooring!! :)
