Mother's Day Surprise Kitchen Floor!

 My husband decided to rip out the old carpet in the kitchen and replace it with something new! We have been wanting to do this for a long time! Finally on Mother's Day weekend I got my wish!

 I love the brown marble look.

Grandma and Grandpa came out and couldn't help but jump right in. They all decided to paint the kitchen too and remove the old wallpaper!   After pictures of the painting.

 The Wallpaper on the bottom of the wall. What a mess. The kids peeled it off a long time ago and the plaster was coming off. It really needed some help.


 Before and After
 Look at this new kitchen Floor!!!!!
 The also did the entry way in this marble design. The living room needed help too so grandma went to work hanging pictures with all the kids and the temple. I LOVE IT!

Thanks everyone for the great surprise and now I need to work on the curtains and the furniture and organizing things in the kitchen....the list is endless when it comes to fixing up a home. So fun!

Oh, wow! Everything looks wonderful! That flooring is awesome and that paint looks great. Have them do my house! ;)

I'm so happy you like it. It is like having a new, more peaceful place so your eyes and mind can rest. Tell Amanda all she has to do is house and feed us for a week and let us play with her sons and we'd be happy to do it for her too.

Oh, that is so exciting and fun. Thought carpet in the kitchen is fun too, so I hope you enjoyed that while it lasted.

Elesa, I really did enjoy running the vacuum everywhere in the house without stopping except to change the plug to a closer one. Now I have to take a break in the middle because the floor needs to be swept. Oh dear, my time saving carpeted kitchen in the middle of the house slows the housework down.
One time I took a hot pan out of the oven and it was burning through my mittens so I put it down really fast on the carpet. It left a square burnt spot. I simply said, "oh now we will have to tear up the carpet, I have ruined it." A couple years later we finally did. It was always fun to say funny things like that when we accidentally spilled grape juice and milk on the carpet. IT was really time for it to go!
