New dining room!

Last weekend Brian and I ripped up the carpet in the dining room (yes, carpet. What were they thinking??) and we began putting in wood laminate flooring. When you put in new flooring, you also have to put in trim and baseboards. We definitely learned A LOT putting in the new floor so next time (planning on doing the living room too) it will go much smoother and a lot quicker! I learned how to use the nail gun, which I totally enjoyed. ;) I can't believe what a difference it makes. The new room looks SO MUCH better!

New floor!!

The dining room before we moved in.
Next up is to touch up the paint on the baseboards (over where the nails went in) and then paint the fireplace mantle. We'll move the dining furniture back in tomorrow!
Thank you Brian for putting in so many hours to make our home look and feel so nice and comfortable!! Even the kids love it.
