Laminate flooring

Ok we are still in the process of doing baseboards and trim but this gives you a glimpse of our DIY laminate floor.

I did my research and learned the best flooring with pets is laminate. It holds up to scratches.

We did pre-sanded plywood planks in the master bath and finished with marine varnish. It has held up beautifuly but scratches easily...so in the high traffic area's we needed something that would hold up to 3 siberian huskies running around.

We chose a dark finish that I am truly in love with...but you have to stay on top of dog hair. Price you pay for having furry kids. Thank God for my wonderful Dirt Devil hardwood floor vacuum...it really makes it much easier to stay on top of the floors.

They're coming out beautiful!

More photos coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by,

I'm still here...

Have been through a lot the last few month's. My S.I.L. decided after 13 months of marriage that he no longer loved my daughter and he wanted a divorce...WOW!!!! Threw ME for a loop!

Our Beastie (our 11 y.o. daughter Audrey's nickname) had to have surgery to remove a growth from her scalp...praise the Lord it was benign.

The most incredible wife & mother I've ever known passed away. She was my M.I.L. and I know it broke my husband's heart. I can only aspire to be the woman she was!

Lastly I changed jobs...for the better for me and my family. Momma is now less stressed!

We are still working on our Love Shack  renovations...seems to be never ending. Will post some pictures soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
