What a fun weekend it was and so so hot. And I’m so glad that I was able to put in the flooring before the kids summer break. I swear I feel like I won’t get anything done with them home now. Crazy!
I do feel like it was my own marathon to finish the floor. This is where I get super competitive and I want to accomplish it. Now that it is done, I really feel good about doing it myself and lets face it, what’s the worst that could happen? If I would have noticed that I couldn’t do it, then I could have still hired someone, right?
The worst part was clearly having to move the furniture out to get the job done.
I will show you my bedroom today and the kids’ rooms on Wednesday.
UPDATE: see how my bedroom has changed since below and by clicking HERE.
I love having the bamboo in my walk-in closet now too:
For the transition into the bathroom tile, I just used our old brass strips instead of the suggested bamboo strips (which I thought were raised too high) and I love the look:
I don’t really have any awful before photos since the carpet looked ok because of the way I cleaned it (click HERE). The areas that were awful were the edges like I mentioned before. We had a huge issue with black dust that settled everywhere in the corners. And the evidence of how bad the rugs actually were and how much I cleaned were visible on the bottom of the carpet and pads.
See above how bad it was and I had the worst sneezing attacks taking this dusty carpet out. Yuck!

And one more thing, I’m also over at Interiors by Jaquin today for her bloggers at home series. I’m sure she’d love a visit by clicking HERE.
