Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!!!

Three generations today...Brian, Papa Ron and Tyler. A little family resemblance?? We celebrated by tackling another project!! Poor Brian! Remember my pictures of my re-done sewing room??? New trim around the baseboards and windows, new lighting, new furniture and new TV??? Remember the ugly carpet??? I've been wanting to replace this, and slowly, but surely we're working on it!!

A year and a half ago we had some water damage and had to replace our wood floor in our kitchen, which matched the wood floor in the dining room, which led to a remodel...anyway...we saved all the hardwood floor that wasn't damaged to use somewhere else. Yesterday morning Brian decided we should replace the carpet in my sewing room and put hardwood in there. This is how we do projects...spur of the moment!

Here's what it used to look like:

Minus furniture:

We started laying it at about 6:30 pm, paused for a bit while a wedding was taking place at the neighbors, and quit around midnight.

Back at it this morning and we're done by 6:30 tonight, including trim and carpet tuck-in!!

Furniture moved back in and looking so much better!!

Doesn't it look great???? What better way to spend Father's Day, huh??

Next weekend the office!


  1. oh I do need to come down for an inspection!! heard your voice at Grandiflora today but I was on hold so I couldn't come out and see your smiling face!

  2. I love it! How wonderful the furniture all looks on your hardwood floor. You will just have to get some throw rugs to put under your feet this winter. But so much easier to sweep up all those loose threads.
