The living room has maple hardwood floors. Very pretty and in good shape too.
I have been haunting Loews and Home Depot for months and months. I was looking for something
As luck would have it they did have it, BUT the maple color that matched my hardwood is a special order. A nice man came by and asked me if I needed help and I asked him if they had any maple in stock. He said, "No, its a special order, BUT I do have 5 boxes that someone returned and they are on sale for $37.00." (normally $49.00 per box). I needed 7 boxes so I would have to order the other 2. I ordered them and while we were doing that another salesman came over and said give her a discount since that box is open. He loaded the 5 boxes and walked up to the register with me. Where he discounted the open box to $20 and the other 4 to $25!!
I believe that God provides for me on a regular basis, but this kind of thing blows me away. He is an awesome God all the time, but I sure appreciate these gifts He gives and I know it was from Him.
I brought the boxes home and it took me about 4 hours to do this:
I have to wait for the other two boxes so I can do the dining room, but that's okay because my knees are killing me! And I have a blood blister on my thumb.
I'm not going to say this was "easy" because I used a couple of naughty words when I had to cut some special pieces. Overall it looks good and I'm happy with the look. I still have to find some transition strips that will work in various areas, but the work is never really done is it?
Thanks for coming on my adventure,
Until next time,
