Our New Floor!

Our carpet in our living room depressed me every time I looked at it. It was a constant sore thumb unless I spent an entire day and close to $100 cleaning it. The bad thing was that the dirt seemed to come right back. I decided about a month or so ago to replace the carpet with hardwood floor. Guess what! It is complete. After a FULL weekend of David, my Dad, and David's Dad working it is done and looks GREAT!
We started Thursday with pulling up the carpet. Landon had a blast helping his Pop Pop (David's Dad):
Then the flooring had to be moved in for a day or two so it could get use to the climate in our house. This is what my living room looked like from Thursday afternoon until Saturday morning:
Here is the final product:
To say I am thrilled is an understatement. All I need now is an area rug to put in the space in front of the coffee table and we are ready to go!

Beautiful!!!! That very thing is on our list of things to do in this house - probably in 2010.

It looks great! Whenever we get a chance to move... our new place will not have carpet!

I so want to do the same thing in our playroom. The carpet is horrid. Your floors look amazing!

There is nothing like a new wood floor! Congrats on getting it done...

What kind of flooring is that? Was it hard to do? I love it! I am hating my carpet right now too and want to do the same!
