We decided that the time had come to tackle some of our "wouldn't it be nice if we did..." house projects this past Labor Day. Not wanting to actually do the work ourselves, we flew my 16 year old brother down to do it for us. ;) Not really, but we certainly did need his energy, expertise, and extra pair of hands! We tackled three rooms, which in retrospect was a bit much...but we're getting there and two of the rooms now look gorgeous!
A few "before and after" pictures: (ok, not a few - these will take some time to load!)
This is the kitchen floor which we replaced. You can't tell in this picture, but there were cracks between each board that caught all kinds of gross stuff, and the people who put in the flooring didn't bother to put it in under the fridge or stove - it was really pretty nasty.
Tearing it out - almost as much fun as taking a sledgehammer to a wall (so says Phillip).
Flooring from the seventies. Wow.
Gabe's family came down to help, too.
And the result!
Doesn't it look lovely? It is SO easy to clean, too.
Next: pictures of the bathroom. :)
