Easy to install flooring

So the flooring that we got for $10.00 a box for the entry way was supppppper easy to put down! I will definatly be laying more of it thorough out the house.
Our side entry is not big at all, and I only used 1 box of the 3 I bought! SCORE!!
Here are some pics from putting it down.

This is what it looked like when I started. Did I mention the carpet on the bottom of the stairs is suppose to be white....

This is what the entry looked like after I ripped up the carpet.....yukkkkkk

some of the floor down
This is what the pieces of flooring look like

The stairs in progress
All done except for the caps

Looks so much cleaner and will be so much easier to clean now!

I will post a updates pic once I get the trim all put back and get some of the trim at the top of the stairs painted white.... I have the paint and decided today was a perfect day. It didn't happen. I started putting it on and it is going on milky.. I am going to Home Depot tomorrow to have that fixed. I hate when I'm trying to do something and nothing seems to go right.

Keep an eye out for updates.

I also hope to get some crafty things posted once I manage to put my house back together hahaha

have a great day!


  1. `nice Esa...there's this and something similar to this at Kent it's a bit cheaper for the similar stuff and by a bit I mean A LOT lol. Looks great!

  2. This is the same kind of flooring that we have in our kitchen and lower bathroom! Ours has a tile design, though. But i can't believe you got it for $10 a box! We paid like 50/box :(

    It's too bad we don't have a store like that here!

  3. They actually have restores all across canada. There is one in Dartmouth and Moncton. Here is the link. http://habitat.ca/findarestorep1380.php
    It's a amazing store. Everything is donated so they don't all have the same stuff but if your in the area it would be worth taking a look if you have a diy project you are going to be doing.

  4. Your new flooring looks great! I love the wood feel against the feet (:
