Wood Floors? Check.

As of Thursday night, we officially have hard wood floors throughout our house (except for our kitchen and our two bathrooms, which are tiled).  We finished the hard wood in Imani's room in just five evenings!

I can say "we" because I did learn how to use the new nail gun the other night.  I was wandering around the house picking up and Jason asked me if I wanted to try out the nail gun.    I was a little intimidated at first but then I decided to try it.  I normally don't do home improvement projects in sun dresses, I swear.



But I wasn't about to go change my clothes just to shoot a few nails into the floor.




Jason did the majority of the work though, and he busted his butt every night getting it done.




And of course, his biggest fan was right by his side.  Maggie didn't care that the nail gun makes a very loud noise.  She'll face any sort of danger just to be next to her dad.




The room looks great with the new floors.  Here is the before:




And here is the after (we still have to put the baseboard back up).



Next post?  We are losing the pink in Imani's room and giving it a whole new look. Stay tuned.

  2. It looks fantastic and I was going to ask about installing wood floors in a sundress, so I'm glad you explained. We put hardwood in our family room last December so I can fully and completely identify with how much work went into it. Well done!

  7. We laid solid bamboo throughout our whole house. The job itself isn't hard....but soooo hard on the body. Ugh.

    Your floors look great. Much better than carpet.

  8. Stephenie,

    Jason (and you) did an awesome job! What a difference the hard wood floor makes in the room! Is she having fun sock skating? Looking forward to seeing what color you're going with.

    Your Friend,
