A new kitchen floor--the final part of our cheap kitchen redo. We actually got this laminate flooring for free. I know, we have some great luck via the Great Provider. Matt and his dad installed it a couple of weekends ago.
And look how closely it matches the hard wood floors that are in the rest of the upstairs...Today, Matt and I will finish up by painting and staining all the trim. Then it will be completely finished.
And....I finally recovered by dining room chairs--something that been on my to-do list for the last two years....
There's also more cush for the tush since I added a couple of layers of carpet padding to the chairs before covering. The off-white vinyl stuff is not the prettiest of fabrics, but the prettiest of fabrics would be trashed very quickly by messy toddlers. So we've opted from something highly practical for now.
I'm considering this a "Frugal Housewife" post because these hand-me-down Ethan Allen chairs were also free! And instead of buying new chairs, we've repainted and recovered them. The date stamp on the bottom says 1958 so they are 50 years old and still have lots of life left.
