to the floor...

As I mentioned in my last post, we have been slowly working on updating our home.  When we moved in, one of the things that bugged us the most in the house was the carpeting.  It was old, dirty, and had an ugly floral pattern.  No matter how much we cleaned, it always looked and felt dirty.  As much as we did not like it, we held off on replacing it for a bit because we wanted to get dogs.  Puppy training is tough and not having to worry as much about the flooring was good.  Besides, living with gross carpet was worth it to hang out with this cuteness..


Anyway, as soon as our dogs were fully house trained, we set out to pick flooring.  We knew we wanted flooring in a grey distressed finish much like these pictures I had gathered for inspiration...

We ended up picking an oak gray laminate at Floor & Decor.  Hardwood in a gray distressed finish would have cost us a fortune so laminate ended up being a great alternative.  If you live near one of these stores, it's definitely worth checking out!

We bought one box to try out first before fully committing.  See the carpet...GROSS!!!


Here is a before and after shot of the stairs...




I love our floors now and was so happy to say goodbye to that gross carpet!
