What a day!! I finally put my new floor in today. I put it in all by myself! I have to say I am pretty darn proud of myself. We had to have a new floor because my 14 year old cat decided to use the hallway carpet as her litter box. She would pee all over the carpet and she actually ruined 2 baseboards!!! We tried everything and finally gave up and put in a new floor.
As you can see the baseboard is gone and the wet spots is where she was going potty. When I bleached that turned white and bubbled..EWWWW!!!!

Next step was priming the floor. This gave me such a headache. I have never used primer and I didn't realize how strong it was!!!
I knew my quilting tools would come in handy someday...I just didn't realize that it would be to cut tiles for my floor!! LOL!!. In case you are wondering, I used a box cutter not my quilt cutting tools!!!

And FINALLY...the new floor!!!!! I will be honest and say some of these tiles are cute and pasted but looks good!! This is just temporary until we put in hardwood floors.

Well done you, no wonder you are proud you should be that is a great acheivement - it will be so much easier to clean rather than the carpet - naughty puss cat!! What does the cat think now lololol.
