My New Flooring

Well I promised some pics when me new flooring was in and things settled so now I have some for you. WOW it is so amazing how much different it makes me feel about the rooms and my house. I love them. What do you think?

OK so this was my 1st dissappointment of this adventure. I was upstairs trying to get my crafty cave in order so I could play in the challenges while the guys were downstairs working in my master bathroom. They went to lunch I when I came downstairs this is what I found. The flooring on the left is what they had laid in my bathroom, the flooring on the right is what was already in the master bedroom laid about 5 yrs ago. These 2 rooms join each other and I am standing in the doorway taking this shot. Do you notice anything? Check out the direction of the patterns. I started to cry. They were already putting the shoe molding back around the edges. After they returned from lunch and I let them know how upset I was he admitted that he had placed flooring in this way before to save on materials and should have consulted with me. He wanted me to think about it overnight after Jessie got home and checked it out. If I still wanted it replaced he would do so.

Jessie got home and instantly said "why didn't they just go ahead and replace it, I do not want this left like this, I want the patterns to match". So they did, they took it up and made it right. Man does it look better.

Now that was more like it. ONce again I had a smile on my face. I love it.

I love it when a contractor gives you a quote and then sticks with it. I wrote a check for the exact same amount as the quote so I was really smiling then. Last time 5 yrs ago the quote and the end result was $5000. NOT at all happy with that. More pics of my crafty cave below but I am still trying to get it in order.
