If you've got a floor and your toilet isn't sitting in your living room, you are waaaay ahead of me.
As much as I would love to clean up this room and get the toilet back in the powder room, that will not be happening any time soon. Let me fill you in on the latest home renovation drama. I know...drama in our house... shocking!
You may recall that we are having new hardwood floors installed. We had the white carpet removed from our living and dining rooms, front and back staircases and upstairs hallway. We also had some existing hardwoods removed from our foyer and powder room.
The removal of carpet, hardwoods, nails and staples took one day. Over the next couple of days the stair treads were sanded, and the front stairs were stained to match the hardwood floors I had chosen.

So once the
The floors are 5" wide planks that come in varying lengths. The problem was with the manufacturer's definition of varying. The boards were 1', 2' and 35". Wha What?? That is not my idea of variation. I would expect some long boards to be included. These were short and nearly impossible to install in a traditional hardwood layout. They would end up looking like a stair step or brick pattern. Not gonna work!
So the project has come to a screeching halt while I scramble to find another hardwood that I like. Did I mention that it took me nearly 6 months to choose the first one?? I've spent half the day staring at these samples.
Want to choose one for me?? I need to go do some dusting.
