Finally new flooring!

As you know awhile back I painted my kitchen cabinets and wanted new flooring to go with them

as our old flooring was at least 28 years old.  My son and SIL do construction but have been

so busy that I hated to keep bothering them about the project. So my husband and I decided to

do it ourselves. Well according to all of the you tube video's etc. it was supposed to be easy

installation. Well I guess it would be if you knew what you were doing. he he But to me it

was hard and we worked so hard but finally got it completed. My poor husband works alot

and when he gets a day off loves going to WV to our farmhouse. Well he took a vacation day

friday for me to put the flooring down. We finished in two days and I am tickled with the results.

But as hard as it was we had alot of fun, I was rolling around on the floor like a kid and told

him how thankful I was that I could still do that. he he He said he was glad no one was looking

in the window. he he Sometimes even hard work can be fun. My kitchen is L Shaped , so it is hard to get

good pictures.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
