New Floors in my Kitchen and Dinning room. Yeah!!!

I am so excited.  I have waited for 7 years to get my new wood floors in my Kitchen and Dinning room.  My Brother is working in Hillsboro and stayed with me for a few days.  He put my new floors down over the weekend and is coming back to finish the trim.  Here are some before pics.

This pic was taken from my Living room, looking at my Front door. 
 This one is from the Dinning room looking into the Kitchen.  Dan had taken what was left of the Linoleum leaving the lighter floor. 
Her is My Brother Dan and My Son James getting ready to go out side to cut another board.  I am so glad James came by and helped his Uncle on the Dinning room floor.
 Steve helped Dan in the Kitchen.  
 Here is my new Kitchen floor with all the appliances put back in place.  Yes it really is that narrow.  It is called a Galley Kitchen.  I call it a One Butt Kitchen.  I can actually open the dishwasher and the refrigerator at the same time, but you can not walk through.
 Here is my Dinning room floor. 
Tomorrow I have to fix the bottoms of the walls and then I am painting.  I will post pictures next week, of the new Dinning room all put back the way I like it. 

Happy Scrapin',



  1. Your new flooring looks absolutely stunning. It made your house look brand new and it made the rooms seem bigger. It’s also perfect for your Galley kitchen. I can’t wait to see it completely finished. Great job!

  2. Wow! I love it!!! It looks great! lol Where's mine??? Just kidding. We'll be getting ours soon enough.lol. Can't wait till I get to come down and visit next. Hopefully it will be soon.
    Miss u lots,

  3. Your new wooden floor looks way better than your previous one! Choosing wooden floors for kitchen and dining area is good decision because this type of flooring is easier to clean. Just make sure that you apply wood polishing to protect your floor from accidental liquid spills. Also, put some rubber pads on your furniture to avoid scratches.
