Check out the floors!

After a week of living in a demo zone, we finally have our new floors in. Jake and I are really excited about how they turned out. The tile was ripped out, we took out the ugly gold chandelier, Jake installed a new brushed nickel chandelier, I spray painted the light fixture above the sink a metallic silver to match the chandelier, bought new rugs, and replaced the green and white striped curtains with chocolate brown curtains (to match my rugs.) We still have more we want to do to the kitchen (stainless steal appliances, new countertops, new backsplash, and I need a new painting with a silver frame) but Jake has to remind me, one thing at a time. For now we are both really happy with the floors and can't wait to tackle more projects (bathroom updates are next on my big list!)

Oh wow! That turned out beautiful! I would love to get our kitchen floors done, but Bri says the same thing...one thing at a time. It's kinda hard when you're the one home staring at them all day though! :) Can't complain. Just got the bathroom floors in and love it. Ya for new!

They look so good! Now I want to go install some hardwood floors. The wood floors make the countertops not so bad now. Actually, they don't bother me at all. The green tile was just so matchy matchy, but now it all looks awesome. The chandalier looks really nice, too

I am so jealous! My kitchen floors are nasty! I thought you were gonna do the front room too. Did you change your mind or was that never the idea?
