Oh my, I had to dig pretty far to find this thread.... I'm still working at my home makeover. I'm finally making some real progress.
Two weeks ago, I put some laminate in the kitchen. I couldn't finish the job as I'm missing one box of boards and long story short, I found out yesterday I'd get it next week.
In the meantime, this week I put some laminate in the hall and living room. I still have the stairs to the entrance (we have a split level) and the entrance to do.
In the spring, we finally paid my brother-in-law who came and painted the living room, kitchen, hall and bedrooms. He's a painter by profession and does a far better and quicker job than I could have done. In 1 week, he did two coats all over.
Now, I'm trying to hurry to put down the laminate because I want to cut it outside before it gets too cold. I have the laminate for 1 more bedroom and then the other bedroom and the office will wait until next spring. I'm have some cleaning and decluttering to do to keep me busy through the winter.
