We've been busy lately, not necessarily crafty-busy, but home-improvement busy. We decided a long time ago to finally replace the broken down, beat up and well-loved carpet in our house with hardwood flooring. When would be a good time? Well, we decided once the girls got out of school we'd begin. It is now day "8" of the major overhaul and there are still a few finishing touches to be done, but the majority of the "big stuff" is completed. What a relief! I should mention that my husband was the one and only person working on it (he took a week off from work) so that might explain the lengthy process. No need to show you the before [yuck] picture, but instead, I'll show you what we see today when we look down....pretty, pretty.
