Rustic Kitchen Floor

The kitchen floors are done! We found these amazing brick pavers, which is what we knew we wanted, and we are so happy with the end result.

Can't believe I forgot a "before" picture....but you can sort of see the linoleum floor in this picture

Our friend Alex (left) came over to help us take up the old floor and lay the pavers. We are so grateful for his help!

In process....

Spreading the grout and wiping off the haze....

And AFTER!! It's so rustic, I love it

One more for Pinterest

I just recently jumped on this bandwagon, but I'm loving Pinterest! I follow my fair share of blogs, but this is a pretty easy and fun way to get quick inspiration for ANYTHING!

I'm slowly building my boards, but I've really had fun looking at other peoples'. I usually just end up repinning others' pictures that I like.

If you haven't seen it, you should! Join me!

Yes, it happened, we got hardwoods! You have probably seen me direct your eye away from our nasty linoleum floors that were in our breakfast nook, but they're gone now! Hallelujah. AND this weekend we are installing a brick floor in our kitchen - I'm so excited I can't stand it.

We just got a medium-dark interlocking laminate floor that should hold up great (and it was nicer on the wallet :) ). We are very pleased with the end result...although it was not too fun getting there at times.

Original floors in the entryway (they were all termite eaten and also wouldn't match what we chose):

Putting in the new ones:

Finished product!

Be still my heart.
