We finally have our lovely new hall floor! Isn't it nice? I have wanted to get a new floor in the hallway since we moved into the house, 20 years ago I might add. Promises, promises.....we'll do it, or I'll get to it (since George said he could do it himself). Well, he finally made the decision to do it and it looks lovely. I guess he figured while we were painting we might as well do it. It used to be a dark brown linoleum floor (yuk). I did not get to take a picture of it because George took it up a couple of Saturday's ago when I was out running errands. Anyway, it turns out there was a white linoleum floor under the dark brown one, and then a nice hard wood under the white linoleum! Yeah!
We were really excited to see a nice hard ward floor underneath.
The story gets better - A couple of days later, while painting the hallway, he missed his step and knocked over a can of paint! Can you believe it? Of all the luck! Thankfully he got it off where is splashed into the kitchen and a few other places, but could not work fast enough to do anything to get most of it up that fell right on that nice floor. So, long story short, and unfortunately a few hard earned dollars later, we (George) put a new floor on top of it. It does look great, and we'll always have a story to tell about it!
