Kitchen Floor!

25 May

Kitchen Floor

The last step in the kitchen remodel is to cover up The World’s Ugliest Floor ™.  There is something particularly satisfying in the fact that the new floor is going right over that gawdawful ugly floor.  Or maybe it’s just my laziness showing — we didn’t have to rip it all out!  Hurrah!  Greg was able to borrow some of the equipment from his uncle (a contractor) but no major home project is complete unless you have to buy some sort of equipment, right?  So, we now have an amazing new saw!

I’m proud to say that I have made cuts on this saw — Aren’t you impressed?  Most importantly, however, the new floor is utterly beautiful!  It is strand bamboo from Lumber Liquidators.  It comes prefinished and is absolutely gorgeous.  It feels like satin underfoot.  The color is rich and makes the green cabinets look even more beautiful!  I LOVE it!  It’s not done yet — we’ll be using the same wood to do the toe kicks — but you can get a feel for it now.

Now, of course, I really have to get to work and put all the kitchen stuff away.  Happy happy joy joy!
