Old Floor

As I've mentioned before, Brian and I are slowly but surely "pulling our townhouse together," so to speak. One thing we've always wanted to update is the flooring in the kitchen. Right now the floor is an ugly white vinyl with lots of nicks and scratches. After several trips to Lumber Liquidators, we FINALLY decided on a wood laminate that we'll put down in the kitchen and the foyer. Here's a "before" pic. Hopefully I'll have an "after" pic to share in a few days!

This past summer, I also blogged about a $300 chair I got for $50! I found it up in New Jersey while Mom and Dad were visiting us. I sent the cushions home with Mom so she could make slip covers for them. After this little makeover, I love the way the chair turned out! I feel blessed to have a mother who is willing and able to put her sewing skills to work for me. Thanks Mom!

The before pic is below. Keep in mind the cushions were not on it because Mom had taken them home, but they were big, orange, cheetah print cushions so . . . you can imagine. Let's just say they weren't quite my style.
