New Floors in the Kitchen

Hi everyone!  I am sorry I have been MIA lately.  We went from vacation, to back-to-school craziness, to back-to-school bugs!  Both the kids were sick and staying home by the second week of school.  Whew!! Not much extra time for blogging.

I posted here here about wanting to install new hardwood flooring in our kitchen and breakfast nook area.  Well, after 5 days of dust and debris, we have new floors.  I went with a herringbone pattern and could not be more pleased.

Here are the results:

The old laminate faux hardwood floor was raised higher than the current floor, so now we need to paint the baseboards.  I swear the projects never end.

Also, next we will be refinishing all of the hardwood floors throughout our home.  So not looking forward to the chaos that comes with moving all the furniture.  At least, I will have the use of our kitchen again.

I will keep you posted!  Off to clean more dust of of every surface in our home 🙂
