Wood flooring is here!

Halle-freaking-llujah!!! Our flooring finally arrived! Installation coming soon!

Mirror re-do

So when you have one of these lovely construction mirrors, you can take some of these pieces of trim and make it awesome!

AND when you have concrete floors you can spray paint right on top of them!!

Will just announced that when he grows up he is going to be a "bachelor", but later he "might change his mind." I didn't even know he knew what bachelor means!

Old pallet to new bedroom sign

An old crusty pallet, a few hours of nail pulling, some cheap paint and stencils and I have a signboard for my bedroom that I love!

Marco Polo

Cooper has been working on an explorer project at school. His explorer is Marco Polo and he had to dress up today for their living museum. We did the best we could with the costume, since he was born in the 1200s, not many reliable photos exist!

Stairs are coming along!

Unfortunately didn't get a picture of the carpet demo, but here is the first shot of the staircase revamp. Just have more coats of stain and lots of white painting to do.

In other news, the kids have been loving rollerblading and sidewalk chalking all over our lovely concrete floors! We had all the flooring on our first floor ripped out a few weeks ago in preparation for our new hardwood floor. Which is taking its sweet time getting shipped to us! Maybe after next week we won't live in a scud missile anymore!

We are having new hardwood installed on our whole first level and here are some pics of the demolition. These guys are working their fannies off scraping the old wood that is glued down to the slab.
