Flooring Surfaces started working on our living room floor this week. We're pretty much replacing all the carpet in our house (minus the basement and the guest room) with hardwood maple floors.
Here are some before shots... (Don't you like how you can tell where our bed was by the square section that is darker here? It's all cat fur... Maya is happy to model how pretty the fur looks actually on the cat versus in little tufts under our bed.)
The carpet in the living room had gotten so dirty it was brown rather than gray. And we all know how much I am not a fan of earth tones. (Of course, it didn't help that I walked in on Riley, who countersurfs, opening a container of Hershey's Cocoa in the middle of the floor and dumping it everywhere two weeks ago). I vacuumed what I could said, "Whatever, this carpet is outta here anyway."
Here's the work so far in the living room. We also got another 12" piece of slate tile added in front of the fire place. One row didn't make any sense to me (see photo of fireplace above) , but two... two just screams "nice." :-) We also got four more shelves made for each side of the fireplace. You'll see them appear when the painters are done with their part of the work in a couple weeks.
