Debut of floors

Been busy this past week putting furniture and some items back in the house. 
With that said I still do not have it all in place but enough where I can give a good idea of what was before and what is now.

My house was built in 1982 and had all original carpet and vinyl. 
carpet was in ever room except kitchen and back bathroom, my bathroom did have carpet which was eliminated.

Carpet was brown and the vinyl was a dark tan with a darker pattern which made the house dark. My goal was to lighten it up without going white. 

So here are before and after pics

I think I was able to get a brighter look in the kitchen.
Turned out so much better than I thought, I was really worried this tile would be too big and not look good together but it does.

No more carpet ...... YEAH!!!!!

Got the tile look but the warmth of the vinyl.

Don't we love our hexagons 

I can not say enough on how much I like this carpet. It's so soft, clean and brighter.
I will not miss the old carpet at all and so glad it's gone.
This is a temporary setup in the sewing room right now. I would love to get a storage/cutting table but right not this old bread/pastry table will work.


LOVE .... LOVE .... LOVE ...

second photo is more like the true color
It looks likes the old homes in Sacramento that I grew up around.
I feel so at home now.

I am so relieved that it is over now but it was so worth it.

Thank you for putting up with me during all this.
Now life is getting closer to normal


  1. All of your flooring is beautiful. Your readers had it easy. I am sure none of it was very easy for you, but as you said well worth it.

  2. Gorgeous! I would love to trade out all the carpeting for tile and wood flooring. Enjoy your updated digs!

  3. looks lovely must have been nice to have a big redo like that. I would love to get rid of all the carpet in the house either for new cleaner stuff or wood

  4. It is all looking wonderful but the hardwood floor is a dream, stunning! Well worth all the anguish it all looks so much lighter as you wanted. Now sit back and enjoy it all. Take care.

  5. of all the great improvements, the kitchen is my favorite. I actually think I may have that same tile set on point in my sewing room. great job on all the updates!!!

  6. the floors look great so worth all the effort.........

  7. All just gorgeous and so fun to see the before and after shots! :)
