Plastic Liberation Day


I couldn't take another day of that dirty, raggedy plastic on my floor-so I ripped it all up. We ripped up the old floor in November of 2019 so this has been a long time coming. The Mister has been hemming and hawing about getting the new floor down because of the stove issue (we have yet to solve) but I was OVER IT. Up it all came and out it went.

I also ripped up the rest of the tile that was in the landing area that transitions to the kitchen floor. Now he didn't have a choice. We had to do something to cover that nasty plywood sub-floor.

What I have wanted to do for a long time was to take the boxes of new flooring and just lay the planks out on the floor so we could play with it for a while until we figure out just what we want to do with it. That's just what I did. The only problem was I couldn't find the things that go on the legs of the chairs and tables to protect the new floor. I knew I knit all those dishcloths for a reason. They came in very handy.


  1. As hard as it is putting in a new floor (hard on the body, I mean), I really love it because it totally makes the room!

  2. Good for you Deb. I love how you used all of your dishcloths as chair "coasters."
    Even you they have to move your stove out, the guys are usually very careful of floors. At least the ones who have been here are. The finish line is getting closer. :-)

  3. Looks like you really were motivated! Glad your dishcloths helped you out...

  4. Perfect use for the dishcloths. I love the color and width of the wood. I'd love something like that in our bedroom.

  5. Oh, what a relief to get rid of the plastic! I had to laugh over your floor protectors! lol
