It's a New Floor!

So we started out to plan on having a quiet weekend.  Yeah, that lasted about 5 minutes.  Nick and I ducked out of work early on Friday and headed to Cheyenne to get new decking for the front porch.  We ended up finding a great deal on Kitchen flooring instead.
So we went from this:
From the hallway into the kitchen.

A decent shot of the hideous tile linoleum.

To this:
And the ugly floor is going...

...Going...

To this:
...Gone! 

New area rugs and all.

One seamless floor from the back door through the kitchen to the hallway.

I am so thrilled.  Nick did most of the work while I ran interference with kiddos.  I also got laundry done, dishes cleaned (several times), Turbo had his cousin over for a sleep over, cabinets got cleaned, I even got a nap.  We also bottled the IPA Nick had brewed up.  So much for a quiet weekend.  Ours was very busy agian.  I don't think we would know what to do with a quiet weekend.  We'd make it exciting somehow.

In other news, we now have a fire in the mountains just 30 miles to the west of us.  We had ashes falling in our driveway last night and the sun looks all funny due to the smoke in the air.   Pray for rain--we need some badly.
How was your weekend?

The floor looks awesome! And I promise to do a rain dance for you as soon as I pick Sprite up from camp. If I do it at work, I will get questions. :-)

Your new floor definitely gives your home a different look! What I like about wood flooring is that it gives any space a warm, lively look, just like what happened to your kitchen! The wood flooring enlivened the space quite well.
