Our little town has this lumbar yard nearby that always has a stack of free pallets outside for anyone to take. I have been meaning to load them up every single time I pass by, but I never stop for some reason. Well recently when we had to pick up our new flooring, it all came on a pallet and sadly, I was just as excited that I finally had a pallet to play with than I was about having our flooring order in! I love the look of worn, raw wood and so many possibilities came to mind on what I would do with these beautiful planks. I love making signs and I love this season, so a fall sign was a must!
BEHR so kindly provided me with the paint for this post, but as always, all opinions and reviews are 100% my own.
I have a little secret. I am the absolute worst at picking out paint colors. To be honest with you, I’ve never bought a paint sample in my life. I’m not one of those people who goes to their hardware store, deliberates over different shades of the same color, paints five or six samples on the wall, and stresses over which one is the right one for days and days. Heck, the last few times I’ve painted a room I probably used the first paint chip I picked up, and each time I loved the color when I put it on the walls (after my initial mini breakdown before it dried completely – which happens every single time).
You guys. It’s finally, officially fall! October is hands down, without a doubt, my all time favorite month ever ever ever! Can you sense my pure obsession here? I mean obsessed is an understatement. The weather, the trees, the food, pumpkin flavored everything, the fall bucket lists. I could really write an entire post about this, but it might get really annoying. Or maybe you love it as much as I do? I thought so. What’s not to love! It also just so happens, us bloggers love to invite you into our homes to see how we celebrate and decorate for this lovely season. And today you are getting super lucky, because you are getting not one, but twelve (technically thirteen) fall blog tours here! So let me welcome you to Finally Fall Home Tours 2016!
Pardon me while I do a huge happy dance, because our new floors are done! Actually they have been done for a week and I am loving them oh so much! This was one house update that I have been looking forward to since the day we moved in. Everywhere I lived previously had carpet floors. While there is nothing wrong with carpet, by any means, I have always dreamed of a home with dark, wood looking floors and I am still in shock that I actually have them now. It only took me 30 long years! Ha!
When I showed you a sneak peek of the flooring we decided on, I mentioned how I used to be a huge snob to laminate. My heart was set on hardwood. Well my views quickly changed after seeing it in person in a few of my friends homes, and I am so so pleased with the outcome of ours! I was super picky when I first started looking, and learned some things along the way. So I wanted to share a few tips when shopping around for your perfect laminate floors!
Friday. You have never looked so good. Really, you haven’t. Seems I’ve caught my first cold of the season and bring you this post from my tissue filled bed. Not the ideal time to get sick, but what can you do! Too bad we still have a million more staples to pull to get ready for our new flooring next weekend! Who wants to come help us? I’ll feed you and tell you how amazing I think you are. In all honesty I have a lot of projects to get done so I am chugging some vitamin C like no other so I can check them off my list!
Oh, what it would be like to be one of those people who can focus on one project at a time. Plan it, finish it, then move on to the next. I am certainly not one of those people! I have a long wishlist of projects that I hope to get done one day, but when I start planning, one idea turns into another, and then I need to do this, or that, and so on and so forth. I have decorating ADHD like no other, my friends! You might have heard me mention we are getting new floors put in this month. Well, a week and half now actually! *Happy dance* With new floors, I thought it would be a great time to paint our main living area too. Time for builder-beige to go! And by main living area I mean our living room, kitchen, dining room, stairs, entryway, and hallway…because they all share one paint color. So there’s that. And thennnnn, wouldn’t you know it, I found the perfect bed frame for our master, and the perfect paint color for our guest bathroom…you get the picture! It’s ongoing and it never ends.
