flooring

garrett is no diy-er. he likes to buy
things as a finished product. we've talked about reflooring so many times, but
haven't made the steps to actually do it. well, i was in on my computer the
saturday after v-day and i heard this sound. i walked into the hall and this
is what awaited me.












i knew g was starting some
thing that was HUGE- way bigger than he thought it would be.
carpet was pretty easy to tear out. tearing up tile is another story...
and we just did the demo. we had a friend lay the new tile. it was quite a process, and it
was not the funnest to actually live in the house and try to carry on with every-
day life. but it's done now and we love it.

Wow...I am impressed. It looks awesome and I love the tile and new couch. The green wall would look awesome...I wish paint didn't take so long...I am a 1 hour project kindof girl and I hate to have my house turned upside down, but I think that it was worth it...it looks fabulous! You decorate so cute too!
