Over the past four years I’ve managed to cleverly hide my kitchen floor from view on this blog. Have you noticed? When I bought my house in 2008, the floor was pretty bad. Almost five years later, it looked even worse.
I’m not sure why someone would pick that pattern or color, but to each his own. After years of saving, I was finally able to get some new flooring.
Yikes, right? Do you see why I’ve been hiding it from you for so long? Yes, we all have our dirty little secrets.
I mentioned back in early December that the folks came to install it. Well, the wrong tile was sent and one thing lead to another. After the delay, the tile was finally installed this past week. I was so thankful that I had decided to bring in the professionals. I wasn’t even DIYing it and it was a hot mess.
Before the new flooring arrived, I had to get rid of my cute, little built-in seating. Terrible, I know. But to be honest, as much as I enjoyed it, it had to go. Sections of the seat were torn, and the back of the banquette actually blocked about one third of the window. Weird, right? You can’t tell from the picture, but it was always something that bothered me. I love natural light, so the more, the better.
I still have to take pictures of the new floor, so I’ll be back with those pictures next week. The kitchen isn’t quite back in shape either, due to various reasonswhich I’ll explain then. Nevertheless, I’m making progress and I’m completely smitten with the new floor. Stay tuned!
