{ Plan B }

Kitchen remodel done.

Time to move onto the bathroom.

It is only about 5 years OVERDUE!!!  every year, this was going to be the winter project and every year, it got pushed back.

No time better than the present,  with a big graduation party now weeks away.

Lets do it.

Plan A:

Take up carpeting, expose the natural hardwood floor, and either keep it, or try something really new and PAINT it.

I have always though painted hardwood floor would be cool.  I have seen it done and it is very cottage-like.   It took me about 3 of the last 5 years to convince my husband to let me do it, and that indeed this CAN be done.

THEN…..we removed the carpeting.


WAY more work than I bargained for.

It was Glenns chance to say those dreaded words to me.   “I told you so!!!!”

Onward to Plan B:

The black & white checkerboard VST composite tile will be laid at 9 am  Monday.

Gotta love “This Old House”.

    I think you should go out and get some paint and paint a portion of the floor and see what he says. If you’re going to cover it anyway, you could have a late April Fool’s day surprise for him.

    I put a really, really ugly color on our living room wall – a section about 3 foot by 3 foot to see what people would think. No one said much until one person finally said, “Are you really going to paint the living room that color?” It was kind of fun to mess with their minds for a couple of days. I am soooo bad.
