Who am I and why a blog?
I’m Mary Ellen and like many of you i’m obsessed with DIY blogs and ideas. My enthusiasm however, does not make up for my lack of skills. Join me as I learn from my disasters during this process. I can ‘t promise it will be divine but it will definitely be entertaining.
It All Started With the Floor…
I have lived in the same condo for 13 years and it has been a while since I have done much updating. Several years ago I had a huge flood in my bedroom and ended up putting down laminate hardwoods after I couldn’t find matching carpet anywhere.
I decided over the summer that next winter I was going to replace the yucky taupe fake Berber with laminate hardwoods. I got several estimates and decided that I would also get a quote to have the kitchen cabinets refaced. I called Home Depot for a quote and after picking myself up off the floor ($10k for less than 200 sq ft!), I naively decided I would do it myself. More on this soon.
The laminate in my bedroom is from Floor and Decor and is called Cannes French Bleed and it’s a brownish color with wide planks, I absolutely love it. My design plan is to build everything around this flooring from redoing the kitchen to a new couch and updated accessories. Hope to see you here next week…
