You FLOORed me!

Hello my friends,
 
Many of you know that recently we got new hardwood flooring in our kitchen, family room, master bedroom, and sewing room.
 
We already had Engineered wood in our kitchen, which I loved.
 
I wanted to replace the carpet in our family room with wood and they were unable to match what I had so I had to get all new.
 
 
I chose chiseled walnut.  Even though I had seen it in a friends home, doing such a large area had me a bit worried.
 
We went to Colorado for a week while they installed it.
Honestly, I was afraid that the wood tone would clash with my cabinets.
 
I must admit that when I walked in I was floored!
 
It was everything I had hoped it would be.

 
I took a risk of ordering a rug on line from Birch Lane.  I chose one that I thought would blend with my throw pillows.  Again, when it arrived I was floored!
 
I think it matches perfectly!!



Here's some other views of the family room,
 



and kitchen.
 

 
I stained the top of our table white, hoping for more of a farmhouse look.  I haven't done the chair seats yet, and I'm thinking I need to sand it more.



 
I am also pleased with how the lights and darks in the wood coordinate with my cabinets.

 
 
I'm still putting my sewing room back together. (I decided to paint my sewing table red) But, I'll show you a few pics of the bedroom.
 
 
The new flooring adds a richness to our bedroom.
 
I bought this faux fur rug at Home Goods.  It's like stepping out onto a soft cloud in the morning.  :)



 
 
Has anything 'floored' you lately? :)
 
hugs,
Jann

Well I do get floored when Christians lose their jobs because of their faith. I also get floored when I try a recipe for the first time and it turns out better than I expected. Like chocolate brownie cake is simply heavenly!

Good morning dearest Jann and thanks most sincerely for sharing your so wonderful floors and your home so, so cozy, indeed, even much cozier, now !

Wishing you a beautiful Monday and new week,
I'm sending blessings across the many miles

Jann,
Your floor looks beautiful! I'm so happy for you that everything went so smoothly. Unfortunately, it hasn't for me with my flooring. I've had a drama going on with mine starting back in July 2016. Total nightmare. I'm writing a post to publish this week about all the drama. Come visit me soon to check it out.

Jann, I love your new wood floors! They are stunning and your rug matches perfectly. We do have a few rooms with carpet that we want taken out and wood floors put in. Perhaps next year.

Your room looks great, Jann. I haven't floored anything lately but I would love to "floor" my kitchen/family room. This looks exactly like what I'd love to do!

Oh- It looks just lovely! It is perfect!!! I am always a bit scared when I have to do a floor - wondering exactly what the outcome of such a large undertaking will look like!
Yours looks perfect! I love it and know you do, too. xo Diana

Your floors look amazing! I'm so happy for you. You're right about your rugs, too. You are quite the decorator. How will you keep your furniture from scratching your floors? We have old wood floors that are original to the house. My husband tried refinishing them when we moved in 8 years ago, but the finish has not held up to four kids well. We really need to do something with them again.

Debbie - Mountain Mama said...

Those floors are stunning, Jann!! I have a question - how do you vacuum that rug in your bedroom? I have one like it in my guest room and it's a nightmare to vacuum!!
