Before and After

Sorry about the not great pictures.  We took out our old carpet out and put in laminate flooring over Spring Break.  DH and Mya worked on pulling the old carpet out.  I had some sewing to finish so they had to get started without me.  You should know DH and I have never put in laminate flooring before.  We bought the supplies and read the instructions online.  It was a little scary at first.

yep that's me texting

   They grey stuff in front of DH is sand.  We have a sand box so when the kids would come in the fine sand would eventually make it's way down below the padding.  

That's me doing the underlayment.  I'm not sure if that is the official name but that is what we called it.

Here's the Finished product before the furniture went back in.  It took all day with DH and I working together.  It was hard on my back.  I got a massage the next day.  We love it.  The kids love it too and they have told me several times it's way better than the carpet.  It's easier to clean and I can't help but like that.  It does make the room more "echo-y."  We notice every little and big thing that gets dropped.  Our cat had ripped up the carpet right in front of the sliding door so I am glad to have that mess gone.


You'll see more of the floor in my next post about the prom dress.
