Orange tile? No thanks!

I tried to like the orange tile floors that were installed in the entry way and kitchen of the new place, but I couldn’t.  I needed something modern and comfortable to stand on for long periods of time while I pretend to be Martha Stewart!  I made my way over to Waldo Bowers and decided on this BEAUTIFUL Provenza flooring for both the entry and the kitchen:

The hardwood floors are oil treated so I know I will have some upkeep, but the color is just divine and really picks up the color of the carpet!  With the floors picked out, it was time to rip out the tile… and rip out I sure did!  This Renolista pulled out every tile with a crowbar and a sledgehammer.  All my tears, sweat, and even a little bit of blood went into making a racket and demoing this atrocious tile floor.

And after chipping away at it (no pun intended) for a few weekend, I finally was left with the end product:

Empty hall closet

Which is exactly how it sits today.  I’m still waiting for the floor to come in and for the installer to come out.  I may be able to demo, but you do not want me installing hardwood floors if you want it to look even remotely decent.  I am smart enough to leave some of the work to the pros!
