My Town is Safer than Your town…

..Unless of course you live in Mission Viejo, because Clarkstown (which Nanuet is a part of) was rated the #2 safest community based on a National analysis of the FBI’s crime statistics! Following hot on the heels of being voted #24 best small town to live in, this is turning out to be QUITE the […]

Undercabinet Molding, Finally!

Yes, it’s been quite a while since we installed the floating floor in our Kitchen. And all this time there was a dirty little secret lurking beneath the floor cabinets.. Check it out: Blech!  Last week, Jeff was in a particularly industrious mood (I think I was lounging on the couch) and after a few […]

In Search of the Perfect Antique White

Yesterday the floor guy put the final coat of poly on, officially marking the end of the floor drama! We also finished painting the master bedroom, Benjamin Moore Silver Sage, a lovely color and the first one in the whole house that I actually liked right away: I’m happy to report that the floor guy’s […]

The Floor Drama Continues – I’m so upset I could scream!

What would you think if you saw this in your refinished floors that you have an admittedly overly emotional attachment to? Apparently our floor guy thinks this is an acceptable patch.

The Floor Guy DID Show Up!

I arrived at the house after work and to my delight saw the floor company’s sign in our front yard! Upstairs I found a beautiful sight. Before I post the after pictures, here is a brief history of our upstairs floors: Disgusting carpet under which was sheet vinyl tile (not shown). Under which was black […]

Weekend Update – in which we almost break up.

Yesterday was a backbreaking and potentially marriage wrecking day.. It started off innocently enough: obsessing in my usual way about what color to paint the trim, a lovely trip to see the dining room set from craigslist etc. But our ho-hum weekend was interrupted by an unexpected call from our floor guy that he was […]

Weekend Update – in which the Kitchen Countertops and Floor Arrive!

Saturday was one of those days when after weeks of preparation and/or waiting, things finally came together in the kitchen. Wait a minute, I’m getting ahead of myself because Friday night is when Jeff actually laid the floor. Yep, it only took him one evening…the first time anyway. I say the “first time” because at […]

Kitchen Floor Solution!

Thanks so much for all of your wonderful responses to my Kitchen Floor Conundrum post of yesterday morning!  Here’s an update..   Once I had the idea of a “washed” wood floor look in my mind I knew I had to consider it as an alternative to the not-quite-rightly-sized checkboard floor. Back at the floor showroom […]

Kitchen Floor Conundrum

First of all, I forgot to post that I finished painting the kitchen… and wonder of all wonders,  I actually like the color (now there’s a first!) I wanted it to be similar to the silvery blue of the dining room but with a touch more green. So I went with Benjamin Moore “Silver Crest” […]

Seeing the floor through the tar..

So I think I mentioned in my post about our final walkthrough before closing how exuberant we were do learn that there were original hardwood floors under the ratty and disgusting carpet that covered the entire upstairs: Our excitement was a bit short lived. It wasn’t until we ripped up the old carpet that we […]
