We have wanted to do new flooring in our kitchen/bath/dining room since we moved in June. We finally decided to do it and got wonderful help from my brother/brother-in-law/father-in-law/and very talented hubby! They did a fabulous job. We have a good friend in the carpet business who we really hoped to give our business too but we settle on Lowe's - basically they had stuff we really liked and were cheaper than anywhere we could find - in this economy, money matters to us! It really is a huge improvement and warms up the whole area! Lovin' it! Had to replace all the baseboards which were needed anyway - now just have to sink those nail heads and patch and do a quick paint cover-up - hate the detail work!
