Changes....



I pulled up my carpet last weekend to uncover beautiful hardword flooring.  The floor is almost flawless...with no scratches!  SCORE!!  My carpet was needing to be replaced but it really does not fit in my budget right now.  I could not remember what the hardwood floor looked like under the carpet from when we had replaced it several years back....and generally, I thought I preferred carpet over hardwood floors.  I have lived with the hardwood floors for a week now....AND I think I really, really like it!  Never had hardwood floors before in my life and thought I would always be a lover of carpet because I love the feel of it on my feet. 

I still need to do a really deep-cleaning....which I will do in a couple of weeks when my daughter lugs over her big hard wood floor deep-cleaning machine!  When this pic was taken with my daughter's i-phone last week, you can tell we had just pulled the carpet up as there is still a roll of carpet leaning in the corner.

***sigh***  Very happy with the floor....

The floor is beautiful, Carolyn...how lucky you are. I have carpet in my family room, other than that it is all hardwood and I love it!!

Hi Carolyn. Your floors are gorgeous! We have been in the process of doing the very same thing. The stairs will need work but the upstairs bedrooms are in great shape. There is just something so warm about an old floor. Good to see you back! Patty

Hi Carolyn ~ I was freshening up my blog and came across your post (love the hardwood floors). Hope all is well with your new job, and that you'll be posting again soon. Blessings in all you do.

Your wood floor is beautiful, Carolyn. Too wonderful to be hiding under carpet. I loved mine when we had our house. I had throw rugs for the warmth under foot.
