I told you about how I am not the person to have decorate your home because I completely disregard to use of samples.
Actually I just ignored the idea of taking a sample of wood home before buying a house full of it. Good thing that choice worked out swell for me. Tile samples on the other hand? I am so all over tile samples.
We’ve been into our local tile store no less than 4 times in the last few weeks and I currently have tile samples spread out in the entry way, my bathroom and my kitchen. Meaning we have to step over tiles as we walk through our house. Why not move it? I need to see what they look like in different lights of course.
Other than tile spread throughout the house, I also have boxes and boxes of wood flooring stacked in no less than 5 separate locations in my home. Of course the wood can’t acclimate in the garage or basement. Of course wood flooring gods, of course.
My house feels like a freaking lumber yard and since we are installing all of our flooring ourselves there is a good chance my home will be decorated in lumber yard chic until the end of the year.
The end of the year!
For now I am stuck telling Maddy to stop standing/walking/jumping off of or on the piles. This wood better look good.It wouldn’t take much for it to look better than the current builder grade abused and stained carpet.
I should probably start thinking of some motivator to keep Luke going on the flooring. Maybe my my sanity will be enough of a motivator for him.
Honestly though, I’ll be helping. I’m just a little, okay a lot, overwhelmed and excited and overwhelmed.
And a pinch broke too.
On a side note I’m offering multi-course homemade meals to anyone who helps, including baked goods. Seriously.
