I debated about flooring for my new craft room. I was trying to decide between leaving it as is or tearing up the carpet and stenciling the sub floor to look something like this:
Since we are getting new carpet upstairs in the next year or two I figured I could cover my stencils then if I absolutely hated it. My only hesitation was that I wasn't sure what I would find when I tore up the carpet (although I was pretty sure I wouldn't find hidden beautiful hardwood floors).
My husband suggested that I put down a laminate floor. Imagining myself wheeling my chair around my new room sealed the deal...laminate it is. And to save a few bucks, I decided to install it myself.
So that's what I did this weekend. I started on Saturday, promptly got very frustrated and decided that the installation charges didn't sound so expensive after all. I started again this morning and finished the job. I like my new floor, but I love that I did it myself.
I'll let hubby finish up with the trim while I move on to the curtains!
