Sea of furniture in the backyard.
Removing the nasty old padding.
Baseboards removed and first course getting started. Grant is giving some extra direction.
We chose this distressed, hand-scraped "Hampton Hickory" laminate.
Installing the T moulding between the tile and new floor was the last step.
Never again will embarrassing frayed carpet be seen here! It looks good with our existing tile too.
Standing in the dining room looking to the front windows. Grant was afraid it might be too dark but because it is reflective it lightens up--there is plenty of natural light in this room.
$20 worth of felt furniture pads later, the room is reloaded.
No more tack strip to stab anyone. We had the nondescript baseboards removed and will reinstall some taller, nicer ones after we paint the walls--the terracotta has had a long run but it is time to go. We are thinking a warm tan color but keeping it fairly light now that the floor is darker.
What a difference a few hours makes!
