As we are making changes to our home again, I want to share with you updates we have done in the recent past that’s made a massive impact for our family and home life.
In 2017 we upgraded our flooring. We had an extra vehicle we didn’t need and sold that and went out the bought flooring for our kitchen/dining room.
This happened to be a cheap and simple renovation that has had a HUGE impact. People who come over to our home still comment on the difference this has had.
This was just after we moved in in 2014. This is how our townhouse was set up, this was only a little bit bigger. The difference was we could have our table leaf in to make it full size. We had it like this for a few years until it wasn’t working anymore.
I had my “Love it or List it” moment while pregnant and could barely get out from behind the table.
This right here is WHY we never put our table in it’s proper space. The carpet….Young family and carpet was a NO GO.
The day finally came for the flooring to be installed.
Interesting thing is I was already blogging and didn’t really document the process. I was in my test phase of how to blog and very green back then.
I still today look at this space and am super happy with how this turned out.
We bought this second hand table on Market Place for a steal and the chairs got an upgrade with slip covers.
There’s still some updates that need to get done, however, we are super grateful and thankful to be able to host big dinners now that we have the space to do so.
I’m thoroughly enjoying picking flowers or doing small table decorations on the top.
In the video I made for YouTube you can see my DIY table runner and canning jar DIY. I had no inspiration with the previous table to do this.
Today the upgrade conversations continue to happen as we have started a few projects and had some major issues come up and had to halt on them.
This is the year to get them DONE. We are not expected to really go anywhere and lucky YOU get to follow along on our updates as we do them.
The amount of flooring the needs to be done in this home is pretty much the entire house, no joke, true story!
