- Wordy Wednesday – DIY Hallway Update
- HALLWAY IS DONE!!!!!
Okay, “Wordless Wednesday” was a good concept, for someone who doesn’t write or speak. Get a picture that signifies your week and post it to your blog. Simple, if you have nothing to say (what were we thinking?).
It’s just the same amount of words just a different name!
We didn’t want to get sued for false advertising.
“They said it was Wordless Wednesday but there were words.”
We don’t have time for a lawsuit!
In our last few WW posts (see we don’t even have to change the acronym), we were showing the progress of our hallway DIY project.
There has been GREAT PROGRESS!
Come on in and take a look around……..
This was the way the floor has been since we’ve moved in. There was NASTY carpet so we just pulled it up until we got our tax refund. We knew flooring would be part of our budget at that time.
The Mister installed some linoleum underneath to even out the floor into the dining room and entry area. We just picked this up for a couple of dollars at the ReStore. WE LOVE THAT PLACE!
Then the flooring we picked out went over it.
The Mister had never installed this particular type of flooring. He had installed the floating laminate before but this needed to be nailed in.
They said rent a staple gun however we were going to need to do this project here and there with work scheduled being what they are. Too expensive to keep renting so what to do?
We pulled up a few videos and someone showed how to angle your own nail gun into the groove. The Mister was sold. And we saved some moolah! Whooohooo!
After a couple of test pieces, he was ready to rock and roll!
Drum roll please………………………………..
WE ARE SO HAPPY WITH IT!
We also had progress on the hall cabinet as well…..
Now it’s all painted.
Disclaimer (cause you know how we feel about being sued)-Obviously, we had to paint the cabinet before the flooring was installed.
The hallway project continues with-
1) Painting of the doors for the cabinet
3) Light switch/outlet cover changes
4) Bedroom doors (new if possible/ReStore)
5) Paint Trim
6) Carpet to Flooring Seems (The Mister is researching on YouTube for this.)
We hope you will come back and see us for our next installment of WW and see how our Hallway is coming along.
BTW- If you need to get something accomplished write a series on a blog about it. The heat is on!
