Do you love your house? We bought our house almost 14 years ago. At that time Hubby and I walked through with a toddler in tow, looking at our would be/could be dream home through rose coloured glasses and the planning began. We would paint our daughter’s room right away. We would replace that old carpet ASAP. A little love and care to those old floors and they would shine right up. A little creative decorating would make “their” old house “our” perfect home. We took the leap, even though it was far from perfect; the neighbourhood was ideal, the backyard fantastic, we jumped and we bought that house!
We moved in. Our “To Do” list was a mile long and we really did try to tackle some of those projects. The problem; our house had other plans for us. We quickly learned our “quaint” wood windows were painted shut. Do you know what happens when you break the seal on painted windows? It gets a little breezy in your home! Breezy is okay in the spring and summer. Not so much in the fall and winter. Job number one became replace the windows. Job number two became replace the furnace. Job number three was the roof. I won’t bore you with what came next. Our wee house became a money pit and all the things I wanted to do, soon became things I had to do. So now, nearly 15 years later, I like my house, but most certainly I do not LOVE MY HOUSE.
Now it is time to change that. Shouldn’t every person love where they live? I think so! It’s time to find my decorating diva, pull out my hard hat and make some big changes to this house that is firmly stuck in the 80’s. Do you want to hear what I have planned? Of course you do!! I am over the top excited to announce that thanks to The Home Depot I am finally taking huge steps to #LoveMyHouse ! I have now made countless trips back and forth to our local Home Depot. I’ve taken, pictures, samples and picked up the biggest order ever of……HARDWOOD FLOORING! Eek! I’m so excited!
The SassyHubby and I are renovating almost the entire main floor of our home! We are replacing cracked dull tile with Dubeau Prestige Series Maple Hardwood. We’re fixing the front hall and the bathroom. We are ripping out stained and yes, burnt rug in the family room.
We are completely tearing out the chipped, and worn out tile in the kitchen.
This renovation is soooo overdue!
Our floors are sort of embarrassing! I will admit, I’m just a little overwhelmed and a complete home reno newbie, so this could get interesting! I hope you will follow along with me on my journey as I shop for my final product, rip-out the old cracked and forever stained stuff, and ultimately replace and reveal my brand new house! You can find me chatting away and asking for opinions on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook all with the hashtag #LoveMyHouse Wish me luck!
