I love doing DIY projects. I joke with my hubby that I'm a cheap date . . . a mocha and visit to Lowes or Home Depot makes me a happy woman. So being married to a handyman is a good match! With the discovery of Houzz and Pinterest, our Renovation Bucket List was created. After some hemming and hawing and a waffling linoleum floor in the kitchen, a decision was made. Our next Renovation Project is to replace the flooring of the middle level of our tri-level home with hard wood floors. YES!!!!
"So what do you think of this kitchen?" I was asked as an ipad was thrust under my nose. "Nice . . . but we need to get the floor done before I can think about that" I answer. Not deterred by my answer, my handyman continues perusing pictures of kitchens. "What about this? We could do this?" "Yeah, maybe some day" I answer.
We got the delivery date for the hardwood flooring material. Right after the Labor Day Weekend . . . perfect! We'll demo the floor over the long weekend and be ready to lay flooring by the second week September. . . OR NOT. That waffling linoleum . . . water damage from a slow leaking dishwasher (you'd think you'd notice water sitting on the floor if the dishwasher was leaking!) So our simple little flooring project has turned into . . . Yup a kitchen renovation. I know a couple of months from now I'll love my house even more than I do now!
Guess I'll just be sewing in the Aspen Glow Quilt Along from Cora's Quilts at my own speed. Sigh.
