Project Of A Different Kind

For about a year and a half now, my kitchen floor has needed some serious TLC. The tile was beautiful but multiple attempts at re-laying and re-grouting just didn’t’ work. The backing board was too water damaged and tile and grout were constantly coming loose. I just felt my kitchen and office were GROSS all the time.

Last fall, via my cousin’s lumberyard, we purchased some tile-ish looking waterproof laminate to replace the floor. And this summer finally came a time where I had the vacation time and my dad was available to help me. We ripped the tile, pulled backing board and million staples, scraped glue and mastic until we had blisters and then snapped together the new floor. All in all it took two and a half solid days of work. But oh my, I couldn’t be more pleased!

I am already in love with cooking on the new floor and being able to sweep and mop knowing I’m actually getting stuff clean. And I hope and pray that is the last time I have to deal with this silly floor!

Now back to knitting tomorrow!

  1. That looks so pretty! And it will be a snap to keep clean.

    I put the wrong floor in our master bathroom because DH didn’t want to wait for the one I wanted (to match the one we put in the hall bathroom). It always looked dirty, and I *hated* it. 10 years later I found a remnant (it was discontinued) and replaced it. Yay!

  4. Good for you. A home should be a haven. You should love it. Most people don’t make their little shangrila and you did.
