New Floor--Big Difference


We've been planning this floor for months now. . .hoping we could find someone to put it down for us. . .In this part of the country, there's a waiting list for up to two years with the few contractors around. . .This year alone we finished the breezeway porch by ourselves. . .We repainted the checkerboard floor in the keeping room by ourselves. . .We repainted the kitchen cabinets, hung new fans and chandeliers in the kitchen. . .by ourselves. . .We painted and hung new curtains in the bedroom. . .New windows throughout the house. . .plus all the maintenance required for the twelve buildings on our farmstead. . .all by ourselves. . .So you would think we'd get a break and not have to tackle the bathroom floor. . .


Life just doesn't work that way for us. . .but now that it's down, we are very proud of it. . .My goodness. . .just look at how much it added to the bath. . .I absolutely love it. ..


This is the last of this year's big projects. . .I think we ended the list with the best of all. . .AND we can SMILE and say. . .'WE DID IT!. . .Who needs a contractor anyway? . .(grin)

Isn't it surprising what we can achieve when faced with a shortage of skilled people to do it for us! I'm really pleased for you, you've done a great job, and the bathroom looks fab!

Floors make such a huge difference! Love the new look! Sometimes the only way to get it done is do it yourself.

The floor is beautiful! That bathroom is beautiful. I'm catching up again and looking back at your last few posts, can't believe all that I've missed. I just love all that you've done, and the bedroom just may be my favorite! The vintage dresses are beautiful.
