It's amazing what a little change can do to a room. OK, so this is a big change, but still. What an amazing difference a day and a dollar (or several) makes! We replaced our nasty carpet with new laminate floors. ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

Here is Grace helping me move things out of the living room ...

Before ...
OK … now I'm showing you something, well, embarrassing … stains that I can't get out!
And the nastiness that is nappy carpet!

And the most fun part … ripping out the carpet!

During …

And this is how I kept the girls entertained & corralled upstairs … our mini-DVD player ...

And …………… after:
Oh my goodness I am sooooo pleased that I couldn't stop taking pictures this morning!  

And please ignore the dust in these pictures … the floors haven't been thoroughly cleaned yet, just had a good Swiffering ;)
Wow … the transformation is lovely!
Another closeup of the floors :)
Oh my goodness … I ♥ them!!  And you know why hubby said this morning?  He said, "It looks so good I want to just go ahead and do the kitchen now." … I couldn't agree more ;)

OK … just for fun …. one more look at the transformation:



I'm done now … I'm off to enjoy my floors!


  1. Looking good!

  2. It looks fantastic. Can't wait to see it in person. : )

  3. WOW! Your house looks GREAT! Wood floors are SO much easier to keep clean than carpets. We did our house one room at a time (as we could afford it) and WOW -all these years later, I am still lovin' the wood floors. Somehow, it just makes the whole house feel cleaner, don't you think?
    Great taste, Heather! It looks GREAT!


What do you think?
