Yay! I just could not handle the icky carpet under my table anymore, so the project of putting hard wood there spilled out into the rest of my house in my high-traffic areas and I'm so happy about it! I think it turned out so great! Now I just need new countertops, new sink, new blinds and a new chandelier and we're set!
Here are before and after. Yes, even I helped! (Well I pulled out staples.)
