New Floor Reveal!

About a month ago I had an overwhelming desire to rip out the carpet in our family room and put down wood floors. I get home from work at 1:30 and my husband gets home at 6:00...so had a little bit of time before he got home. So, this is what my husband came home to:
LOL! I am laughing as I look at this! I admit, I had some help...my dad was in cahoots with me!

And bright and early the next morning we ripped out and started laying the floor! 

We didn't get too far because all the kids were home and so my dad said he would come back on Monday morning and work on it while everyone was gone. A few days later, I came home to this: 
This is looking in from the front door. LOVE IT! 
I love the dark floors. The only problem is the dust! 
I like the floors with the colors I already had in the room. Thank goodness because I am not in the mood to paint! 
Behind the shutters is my workshop, so I can open them up and always see what is going on in the family room.

I have to be honest and tell you that my father did 99.4% of this for me! I am super lucky to have him live near me and that he is willing to do this for me! Thanks Dad!

  1. BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I love hardwood floors they add so much to a room! LOVE IT! I am sure you do too!

  2. Love the floors! You are so lucky to have a dad to do your projects for/with you! You have a wonderful home!

  3. Floors look great! Don't you love being a daddy's girl - I know I do!

  4. Looks beautiful Irene (and Bob). I understand about the dust completely, but for us it has been better than the carpet was at our house. Everything you do is amazing. I bet you had to buy a lot of felt pieces, didn't you?!

  5. I'm restoring the old jarrah floorboards that were found under the dingy old carpet through my house. Room by room they are being bought into their upmost glory! I love that you are laying the boards yourself, must be hard to move all the furniture out the way to do it. But worth it in the end no doubt :)
