Who Gives A Ship

Wide Pine Flooring In Guest Room

We certainly don’t give a ship around here!  I don’t give a ship that I’m up past my bedtime writing this post.  I don’t give a ship that our dog is acting uber annoying this evening.  And I certainly don’t give a ship that it’s raining outside right now.  What do I give a ship […]

Pine Hard: How To Install Wide Pine Flooring

Hall With New Flooring

Two things…one…I’ve been watching ALOT of Die Hard lately (hence the blog post title) and two…we’ve laid down the pine flooring in our upstairs hallway and took it from this (a laminate mess): To this (a wide pine masterpiece): I’m not gonna lie, we tackled this project a couple weeks ago but I’ve been dreading […]

Down Undah

Remove A Sub Floor

This weekend was a whirlwind…wait…uh…no…not really.  We got snowed in this past weekend thanks to winter storm Nemo.  Neither Colby or myself left the house the entire day on Saturday, but we stocked up and prepared for the storm Friday night.  And by stocked up I mean we came home with a case of beer […]

Hall Floor Re-Refinishing

Scraping Up The Poly On The Floor

It’s time to put your thinking caps memory caps on, cuz we’re going back…back in a New York Groove.  What?!  Every good blog post deserves a little Kiss.  Anyway…serious time now.  Or about as serious as we get around these parts.  But do you remember when we refinished our hall floor?  The floor along the […]

Rug Switcheroo

Goose Loves The New Rug

So some of you super observant, sneaky sneaky folk (but surprisingly not my mom), may have noticed the new addition to our living room back when we posted about our little fall art project.  Yes, there’s a rug in town!  And by in town, I really mean in the living room.  Our living room was […]

White Floor Challenge

White Painted Floor Boards

And we’re back in the master bedroom yet again for another riveting “where are we now” post.  When we left off on Tuesday, things were looking a little like this: Walls were painted, window trim installed and stained, and bead board installed and painted on the slanty ceiling parts.  Now batting for team bedroom reno…floor […]

Goose Meets Laminate Floor


Today, one of my favorite blog commenters Kelly (seriously girl…I look forward to your comments every day) asked how Goose was liking the new laminate floor. So I thought answering her question would make a great blog post.  And what makes a blog post even more amazing?  Videos!  We took a couple videos of Goose […]

I’ve Got 99 Problems But Our Floor Ain’t One

New Kitchen Flooring

It’s official…we have new kitchen floor in the houszzzz!  Be prepared…we’ve got about a gazillion and a half pictures of the new kitchen floor prepared for your viewing pleasure.  Lucky for you we’ve decided to share only 11 of those pictures.

Just Your Typical Impulse Purchase

Pine Laminate Floor

It’s not uncommon for Colby to come home from his work as a mill work salesman with a purchase from one of the local lumber yards he calls on.  From grass seed to trim to plywood and even windows!  But on Monday, he came home with the ultimate impulse purchase….pine laminate flooring for our kitchen. […]

Mayday Mayday

Piece of Poly Peeled Up

I’m sending out an international radiotelephone…errrrr…blog signal announcing our distress!  Our floor is peeeeeeeeling!  Our beautiful just finished floor that used to look like this just weeks ago: Is doing this: Those are dog scratches large sections of poly peeling up.  See: Floor poly film in hand.  Oh and did anyone else pick up that […]

Enter At Your Own Risk

Setup Entry

Apparently floor finishing is my thing these days.  Like plastic surgery is to Joan Rivers and kid adoption is to Angelina Jolie.  We all have our things.  My kind of thing these days involves an orbital sander in my hand.  But I wasn’t without my reason.  While our entry floor is “new” as in we […]

Hall Floor Refinishing Part Two

Refinished Hallway Floor

After a long weekend of ridiculously amounts of polying the hallway floor, I’m super stoked to reveal the finished hallway floor. Well…kind of finished hallway floor.  There’s still the heating vent to spray paint and put back in the floor.  And then there’s that weirdly, light colored floor section that I want need to sand […]

My Maple Mistake

Maple Wood Staining Variances

Lately, it’s felt like we’ve fallen off the DIY wagon.  It’s been at least a month since I painted anything, our house has been clean…like no dust kind of clean, and it hasn’t stunk like polyurethane.  It’s weird.  And oddly doesn’t feel like home without those things.  But we’re back in the proverbial saddle and […]

Flor It

View Of The Parlor From The Dining Room

A couple of weeks ago, I nearly accosted the UPS man as he was coming up the walk with this box: That’s the parlor Flor rug that I ordered (from Flor.com) a couple of weeks ago.  Remember?  From this post way back here?  Where we Photoshoped a bunch of different Flor rugs into our parlor […]

The Great Rug Dilemma

Chevron Rug

Remember when we posted about the new rug that we got for the parlor?  And how it was a major fail?  You know…because it was too small?  Well, we’ve FINALLY come to a decision about a new rug…well…a decision in the sense that we’ve picked out what rug we’ll be getting but we’ve still yet […]
