It began with a basic bedroom.
It morphed into a bedroom with a paint job (Sherwin Williams paint, some patience with some paint tape, and learning that measuring for stripes after a vicodin and while pissed at the best friend/not the boyfriend isn’t always a first try success.) Window coverings from JCPenney and are on every window in the house.
It further morphed into me putting down the entire hardwood floor with a little assistance from my 4 year old partner in crime.
And I will now work on cleaning my closet while singing I am Woman Hear me ROAR.
I shouldn’t really say “kitchen” flooring, because whatever goes in the kitchen will go through the whole house.
I thought about carpet for about 30 seconds. Then Alex spilled syrup and orange juice and popcorn all over the floor and I thought about how lovely it would be to not have to spend my life scrubbing stickiness out of carpet and decided I wanted more wood. (That’s what she said.)
The nasty lineoleum and carpet has to go.
The Dude recommended laminate and I scoffed at him. I’ve had some laminate before and hated it. I could see the rough surface of fake wood and the seams around each plank. No way was I spending money on that.
I went to the local big box store to look at wood. Came home and said, “Uh, the stuff I liked the best was laminate.” Tasty, tasty words I got to eat.
