New wood floor

So over Labor Day weekend (which I so did not know you are suppose to actually take a break from labor– I thought it meant to do more labor :)) My awesome Parents came to visit us and help us put in our new wood floor.

My Dad was the flooring workaholic expert and worked us till us little sissy city kids thought we we’re gonna die. It was alot of fun and I love it! We still have some work to do on it but the kitchen is one step closer to my design board- *awesome :)

*(Notice who’s standing ready to move on :)
and who well is umm not so ready to move on.

My Parents made a hit and run trip and came friday evening– worked worked worked (my mom studied for her school test most the time- working) ate at Texas Roadhouse– worked worked worked and than left Sunday afternoon– wish we could have actually showed them the sites and stuff but maybe next time.

After my parents left it was up to me and Dave to sand and finish the floor– but seriously my dad worked Dave to death so I did most the sanding and he did the sweeping of the sawdust-(Dave is such a good sweeper) We finished it with all the coats I think on Wednesday and I put one coat of paint on the baseboards and than when Saturday came rolling around we crashed– I was so burned out and tired and ya soooo tired- instead we sat and ate Junior mints drank some dew and watched star wars :) such fun times. Hopefully this weekend we’ll get the baseboard on though & officially call the floor finished :)

*notice the awesome work approved footwear :)
*and umm Dave sweeping– he helped a lot and only played a little :)
Waiting for it to dry so we can do it all over again- -sand, stain– keep the kids and dog off of it

and here’s the Before and currently–lots of plans for the kitchen but it’s coming along– also if I could draw your attention to the hideous gold chandelier– ya that thing was about tore out of the ceiling after I banged my head on it 50,000 times– it will be the next thing replaced along with the oh so lovely maroon blinds :)

Also I forgot to mention that during all of this our disposal went out on us and was gushing water all over our new unsealed wood floor so that evening we (I mean my awesome amazing husband who seems to be able to do everything of course) replace the disposal– so much fun.

All in all I love our new floor– it’s awesome, so smooth and pretty- It’s time I go downstairs and admire it again. night everyone.
