Hello! Are you going as crazy as me this week? I apologize in advance if this post is a little wacky. We are in overdrive working on the house every night, trying to grab a few Christmas gifts, and oh yeah, working full time jobs in between. I have SO much stuff to show you! Our master bathroom is fully tiled and painted, our bedrooms are FINISHED and one EVEN has curtains! We are still keeping our eyes on a December 23rd move-in date, and it's going to be close!
Do you like the new blog design? I asked my super-talented friend Brooke (aka Mrs. Cupcake, aka Brooke @ Claremont Road) if she could design a new header for me. Look what she whipped up! She took it upon herself to redesign the whole thing! Not only is Brooke a fabulous designer, she's also a great friend and I am so lucky to have her in my life! You should check out her blog over at Claremont Road.
You might remember from my last post that our kitchen is starting to come together- but the floors are still looking a little drab. So we decided to paint them green!
Okay, just kidding, but isn't the adhesive for our cork floor tiles a festive color?
These went down without too much of a hassle, and we were so excited to be able to cut them with a utility knife instead of a tile saw. The hubs has about had it with tiling, and trekking out in the cold (ours is actually set up on our rooftop) to use the wet saw is NOT on his top ten list of favorite home renovation activities at this point.
Once you have the tiles precisely in place, you simply roll over them with the floor roller (more fun if you accomplish this skateboard style) and they are locked down.
And voila, you have floors!
We purchased our cork unfinished, so we have to add a few coats of sealant now that the tile is set- it's on the (long) list for the weekend.
Do you like it when bloggers keep it real? I do. So in the interest of keeping it real, check out the view from my kitchen into the dining room- taken last night. Isn't it lovely? My mom was telling me yesterday that she's disappointed that she hasn't had time to do a lot of holiday decorating this year. I think this picture is going to make her feel better about herself.
This room is going to be ready for Christmas Eve dinner in just seven days!
(Pray for me please!)
