Since I'm lazy and tired, I let Scott blog about our new floor:
For a over a year Anna and I have been looking at redoing the flooring on our main floor with hardwood. We picked out the flooring we wanted that went well with the new cabinets in the kitchen. It is laminate that is finished in a Brazilian Cherry.
I went to Home Depot and was browsing for a thing for my keys when I saw that the flooring we wanted was on clearance. I called Anna and told her, and she told me to get it. When I was paying for it, I told the flooring lady that I was going to pay with my Home Depot card and she said "Thanks for telling me that 'Lowes has that for cheaper' "(wink wink) and gave me an additional 5% off. Home Depot has a customer for life.
Then next day we really went to work, getting about 2/3 of it finished.
The last day we finished and cleaned up. Here are some before and after pictures.
