Replace Kitchen Floor – Check

Last night I started the process of replacing the kitchen floors.  Cassie came over around 5 to drop off the flooring, we then got to yapping.  Then around 6:30 Mary & Ryan (matt’s friends from the gym) showed up to help also!  I think they peer pressured Cassie to stay.  I’m glad, I needed the help!  We started by ripping off the old nasty vinyl fake wood trim.


Then we spackled around the removed trim.  After that, that’s about when everyone went home – it was all a project in itself.

I was up & working by 6:45am this morning.  I started with sanding the spackle & then painting far enough down around the trim so it’d be presentable! Carrie showed up around 11:00 to help me with the actual floor itself.  Here are some pictures.

Mary & Ryan showed up towards the end of Carrie & laying the floor – jut in time to cut the trim, install it, & move appliances back.

Here’s the finished product!  (I LOVE IT.  Such an improvement).

I’m so glad its done!  It’s such an improvement from the nasty brown stuff before.  I’m so appreciative of everyone’s help!!!

Now I need to lay on the couch…
