What a day!!

The actually started Friday night at about 6:00pm with ripping up the carpet in the music room. We stopped for dinner and a movie, then I went back in and pulled up the tack boards and the staples. We did not get to bed until about 11:00pm. We woke up at 6:30am and got ready to be at Lowe's at 7:00am. We got our supplies and then we came home and realized that they flooring store did not give us enough padding. AAGGHH! We figured out what to do about that and got the saw set up and mapped out what we wanted to do. By 9:30 we were on our way and it was really going fast. We were about 2/3 of the way done and we had to stop to go to lunch for a birthday. We came home and we finished with the flooring about an hour later. We then went back to Lowe's to find the trim and threshold pieces we liked. We had a VERY difficult time agreeing on something but we finally found something, but weren't sure if it would work. It did and all the trim pieces will be beautiful! I will stain them in the morning and we will put them all down, move the furniture back in and be completely finished with the room. YEAH!! Hopefully that will help sell the house.

We also discovered that there are hard wood floors in the living room and hallway. That can only help as an incentive, right?

Now it is time for some sherbet and a movie-Batman Begins!

I've never lived through this project, but then I'm not She-ra either, lol! I LOVE wood floors though. We too scrambled to try to change a few things we thought might make our house more appealing.
