It was just three weeks ago that I declared that this would be a project-free summer. No major overhauls, no weekends spent chugging Fraps and darting back and forth to Home Depot, no stress, no nothing except pool days, weddings and rum.
Well, I'm a huge stinking liar.
Yesterday, Hubs and I came to a realization:
Tiling the kitchen floor would require us pulling up two layers of vinyl, laying a new subfloor and then - actually tiling.
Gag me with a spoon!
Laying a resilient floor, however, would require us vacuuming a bit, pulling up the trim (which needs replacing anyway) and snapping some plants into place. It'd also cost about a third of the price.
And so, instead of saving and re-energizing to do a tile job, we're on the hunt for resilient floors and plan to make progress this summer.
Grasscloth resilient planks - yes please!
We just can't let the summer pass without making one tiny house tweak. It wouldn't be right.
Have you ever had to take a DIY break? Or could you not stay away?
