Floors are finally finished in the Kitchen/Sunroom area.
Now! If I can just keep Craig home long enough to get the baseboard laid,
well what baseboard I have! Home Depot has been out of it all week!
Figures! And I only need about 5 more pieces! Anyway!
Then we can get the behemoth cupboards put back into place
so I can get all the dishes, pots and pans and food put back up!
Right now all the cupboards are setting in the dinning room.
That's what happens when you have no built in cabinets!
I've never been sorry we removed all the cabinets to use free standing cupboards.

I am so happy with the flooring!
I love it!
Because of the low, low price I didn't get to choose the color.
But I couldn't be happier with the color!
And I am really digging the gray walls!
I may not like them this winter, but we will see!
I can always paint again next spring.

I plan on putting a long dinning table to span the sunroom area.
And only one piece of furniture in that room!
I only want open floor space.
Who knows what I will hang on the walls though.
I do miss the porch that was in the sunroom, but I was really tried of it!

And as for the strips!
I hate those!
But thats what comes along with mobile home living.
Actually, the strips were 4 ft. apart
and we added some so it they would look more deliberate.
I removed the strips in the living room myself years ago,
but I have problems with the cracks wanting to open up.
I'm sure there was a better way to do it
but I was single at the time and I just did the best I could!

You are amazing, TOT...the beauty you have created in a manufactured home is inspirational!

See you next month!


Sue said...

I love how open your house is! We pay for our good weather here, so we live in cracker boxes. My son helped me take out all of our built in cabinets too. I use old vintage cupboards, and they work great. I can't wait to see the "after" pictures!

Take care, Sue

The floor looks amazing! Just gorgeous. I can't wait to see it all put together. That gray on the walls is really pretty, too.

We've got those strips, too. In some rooms I took them off, peeled the paper off the walls and did a tape and texture on them. It was a lot of work, but it's holding up.

the floors are beautiful,
i can't wait to see your vision come to be here.

I asked for pics and woot I got them!!!!
But dang woman, you are tugging on my grey loving heartstrings.
We each have a bowling alley room in common also! I lovingly refer to my living room that way..One loooooong space. When yours is all put back maybe I'll steal an idea or two..

I am chompin' at the bit ( I am an old grey mare after all) to see it all back together. Take your time..I'll be waiting right here....

Okay... I'm not kidding when I say this...

My heart jumped in excitement to see that YOU - my DESIGN GENIUS - have the dreaded strips!!! They are the bain of my very existence!!! I too added extra ones... but they only serve to make me want to scowl at them... constantly. Did you know that your house hangs on my inspiration board? Has since before I knew that you were YOU!

LOVE the wall color - and your floor is gorgeousness!!! Can't wait to keep getting inspired!

Little Oliver is a doll!

Adore the floors and the gray walls gives it some warmth. I'm painting one wall in my guest room gray ...maybe 2.

I love that floor Theresa! Beautiful color. I hope we get to see when you get the cabinets back in.I always loved your free standing cupboards.
I also always loved your porch and will be sorry to see it go. Whatever you do in there I know will be awesome and I can hardly wait.
I bet you can't wait to get all this construction to be behind you.

Oliver is the cutest little guy. You must be over the moon! I'm so glad he's here safe and sound.
sending hugs...

Theresa said...

Those floors are gorgeous! I actually have a couple of cans of grey paint to use somewhere in the house. I have a couple of rooms that deperately need a new paint job and the paint was on the oops shelf ~ YAY for me! That is a fabulous amount of space... I can't wait to see your finished project.

Little Oliver is such a sweet blessing, lucky you, lucky him.
