After Christmas we spent two days putting down laminate flooring in the living and dining rooms. Prior to this we had been living with just plywood on the floors. I hated dealing with floors that would not get clean. It was torture. Well now I get to constantly sweep since I can now see every little thing on our lovely flooring.

Day two was the dining room...
Dining room before
Dining room midway
Dining room complete!
So as we finish the flooring the husband and his Dad say, Let's do the kitchen floor tomorrow. Ok, I was not prepared for doing tile I figured two days of work and the rest of the week for fun. It took a very long day to do the tile in the kitchen and laundry area. We did the laundry in green.
We did the kitchen in blue.
(Photos from Lowes.com, although both tiles were found at Habitat ReStores for a great deal.)
But as with the husband and father in-law, nothing is ever simple. So in between tiling they fixed holes in the walls, took down cabinets and we ended up re-patching an old patch in the floor.
Kitchen floor before...YUCK!
Husband took down the cabinet above the window. I got rid of those icky blinds.

The re-patch of the kitchen floor. So much better.
The laundry area is nearly complete.
The kitchen halfway.
The painted floor vent looks sweet!
That was 4 days ago. Glue is still coming up from parts of the floor. They forgot they needed a roller to press down the tiles. I keep walking over the floor. I keep hoping it will finish oozing. It has me so frazzled. We have put most of the kitchen back together. We have cleaned off the floor. I will be back to the good fight again tomorrow.
