We put in the kitchen floor this past weekend...Natty was a bit slow to warm up to it. When we placed the first couple rows down she tip-toed around the perimeter. We thought she might be used to sleeping in saw dust and other construction debris, but after a couple invites, she approved and snoozed out the rest of the installation.
We have used a new clickable vinyl floor with a wood appearance, in the kitchen, breakfast and mud room. The Smartcore Flooring in Brazillian Ipe was easy to install - minus the time I wacked my thumb with the rubber mallet (#@*&%!!!) That was second time blood was shed in this kitchen, I almost ripped my nail off last week while sanding. This had me thinking back to my thoughts that there would be some blood, sweat, and tears involved with the reno of 120 Queen St. The tally so far, LOTS of sweat (HVAC will be installed end of Sept./Oct), a little blood (two of my fingers), no tears...maybe a couple when trying to get grit out of my contacts.
All in all, not too bad...and worth it when at the end of the day a project is complete, and looks darn good!
Plus, Bruce painted the walls City Loft SW 7631 - a nice soft grey/beige, this color is going to be used in many common areas throughout the house!
Cabinets + Appliances up next.
WELCOME TO QUEEN ST.
