March was a whirlwind for me.
It started back in January when we had a water leak in our kitchen that ruined the flooring.
This laminate flooring ran throughout the downstairs, up our stairs, on the landing and into our office (we had put it in 9 years ago over the linoleum you are seeing). That is almost 1300 sq feet of flooring that needed replaced since it couldn’t be repaired. I felt like we were moving out of our home for a few weeks as we prepped to replace the floors. Our little water damage issue suddenly became a BIG project.
Since we were ripping up all the floors, we should paint the walls, and the ceiling could use freshened up…and well the doors need removed anyways so lets give them a fresh coat of paint…
Oh and while we are at that, lets paint the kitchen cabinets, and add some trim to them…
and how about putting some board and batten details in the powder room…
I started being threatened that if I added one more thing to the list I was going to be in trouble! So as you can see our little remodel job turned out to be BIG! Lots of long days of work. At one time I felt half our house was in the back yard…and it really was, including the toilet!
I am one LUCKY girl with my handy husband. During the process of remodeling we got along great. Our only disagreement was how to start the project! In the end…neither of our visions worked and we did a combo of both our plans.
I did manage to throw in an ART EVENT which gave us lots of incentive to have our house back together just enough to set up the event and create the “TRINKETS & TREASURE” cases. Thanks to all my artsy students that put up with some of the mess of construction.
I also enJOYed a trip to Portland to get my daughters wedding dress for her June wedding, enJOYed Spring Break and Easter with family and friends and so much more. Life has been FULL very very FULL…but all very much worth it. I can’t wait to show off all our hard work as we finish up the last of the to do list! Welcome APRIL….
