Dolce Mahogany Goodness

When we moved into our house a little over five years ago we knew it needed a lot of help in the redecorating department.

The walls were pink in most of the house. The living room/kitchen area had the most awful floral wallpaper that made me dizzy when I looked at it on the TOP half of the wall. The bottom half was a dark blue color -- that wasn't too bad when you considered the rest of the house. There was a boarder between the wallpaper and the paint that was just horrid and ran the entire way around the ground floor. The master bathroom had another floral wallpaper that just gave me a headache! And it reflected off the mirrors which made it much worse!

It didn't take us long to get rid of those decorating nightmares!

But one thing that has lasted is the awful white vinyl flooring! The white flooring is horrible. I can NOT keep it clean. I mop and it stays dirty. The seams are coming apart, it is buckling arund the edges and it's ugly. I hate it! It's just so expensive to have replaced, we just haven't been able to aford it.

Until yesterday, that is....

Yesterday we had new Pergo floors installed in our kitchen and foyer. Insert big smiling face, happy dancing me here!

Behold the transformation......

Now, I wonder how long I should wait until I request new countertops and carpets?
