Wood flooring!

My room has always had white carpet since I was in the 5th grade. I had one that was put in then, then another when I was a sophomore in high school. I used to be really neat, and would vacum allll the time to keep it in perfect condition. However, lately, I haven't been as diligent, and Molly and Rory aren't potty trained...and ya know...the carpeting got dirty.

So Dave and I decided to spend the day yesterday ripping it all out. I knew there was hardwoor floor underneath it, and I knew from the carpet people from when I was a sophomore that the floor was in really good shape. So, we ripped, and pulled out staples, and rolled up carpeting to reveal a fabulous hardwoor floor that hasn't seen the light of day for about 30 years! (When my parents bought the house, this room had brown/gold shag rug)



The 1st picture I could find with the white rug...that's Molly as a puppy, so that pic is over a year old...see the white rug..not in terrible shape, but it still bothered me...

And here is a view of my room that I just took. Yey for hardwood floors! I'm still not totally used to it, part of it creaks as I walk...

I love hardwood! We replaced our carpet in 2001 with hardwood, and put cement tiles in the kitchen instead of linoleum :) It's so classy!

Hardwood is nice, but sometimes it gets really cold (at least in my house it does) that you can't go barefoot, which I like to do most of the time.

And on a side note, the citrus painting! That was always one of my favorites :)

I'm happy to see that you still have the awesome giraffe table!! I can't find those anywhere anymore. =(

The floor looks great, and I had no idea that Molly was that old already!!
