The new floor!!!

Category: Herb Garden | Posted: Mon Nov 20, 2006 1:35 am

Well, the new floor is mostly down. DR has to get some kind of caulk for the edges along the carpet because it wouldn't go under it. It was caulked before and nailed. I had to pull all those little nails. They must have put one every half inch for six feet. I wonder if they thought it would get up and walk away. It's got a lump in the middle and we can't find Chance. Dan said the lump whined when he walked past and poked it. Oh, dear!!!
I can't find my table again because we couldn't leave well enough alone and changed shelving around in the dining room so we could move the tall shelf from the end of the kitchen island. I put a small table there but I want to watch for a cupboard short enough to go under the piece of island that sticks out. I can't believe how much brighter the lighter colored flooring makes the kitchen. I did not think the old flooring was dark colored.I'm now glad we didn't get the greenish colored flooring from the first place. It was much darker. I had to take all the cookbooks off of the shelves and we moved the shelves. Then, DR found me a couple of boxes and I put some of the books in storage. Maybe just until after the holidays. Then, we moved the set of shelves from the end of the kitchen island to where the cookbook shelves had been. That set of shelves holds tea pots, tea and misc. kitchen equipment that won't fit in a cupboard. Plus a tub of potatoes, sweetpotatoes and onions. The little table hold crocks and pots of kitchen utensils near the stove for daily use. Of course, messy person that I am, I had all sorts of things on the shelves other than cookbooks and all of that stuff landed on the table. Tomorrow is trash day so a good day to just sweep it all in a bag and get rid of it. We went out to the buffet place for supper because I just didn't want to cook. It was nice, too. 76F when we got there but the sun was going down so it was only 67F when we came out. Still it was a nice day and the flooring is down. Dooley

Glad you got the flooring down. I know y'all are relieved. Poor Chance, did she ever find her way out? I know what you mean about the nails. When we took the carpet up in Sarah's room the stripping had thousands of nails in it. It was like someone was having way too much fun with the nail gun.
