    I always wondered if the IKEA floor quality was good or not, but it looks great on your floor! Can't wait to see the finished room!

    It looks so great, I LOVE how the room is coming out so far- I am dying to know what else you are going to do in there.

    I know I've said this before, but you seriously have the best hubby ever- I cant believe he does ALL these projects for you!

    What an amazing transformation. It looks great and for the price you just can't beat Ikea. I completely understand where you are coming from with having finished an extra project this weekend. I tackle on two projects at home. When you have a chance come by and check out the forest I created in our master bedroom.

    It looks wonderful!
    Great choice of flooring for
    pups and also for ease of installation for DIY'ers.
    I work in our family's floor
    covering and tile business and we get a lot of DIY customers for laminate floors. Your pictures and installation instructions were excellent!

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
