Hard wood flooring for the living room, Hallelujah!

Meet "The Blue Monster" for years it has mocked me with the dirt, stains, smell, worn and torn filth! It was extremely bad, so the next few pictures are not for the faint of heart.. please be advised and look away if you just can't handle something so disgusting!

Remember I did warn you..

I can not believe we have lived with this for so long! 

My Mother's Day present.. New hardwood flooring!!! 

Its sooo pretty!

I think it really makes the room seem bigger. Before your eyes would just stop because of the ugly carpet but now you just want to follow the flow of the wood all the way to the walls.

Thank you to my husband for this gift which took us about 5 hours to complete. We will never fear the Blue Monster ever again! hehe! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day 

Edit Note--  This was laminate hardwood flooring, yes it was simple to install. We went from one side to the other and made our cuts on the same wall. Total cost was around $350, that included 9 boxes of flooring, 3 rolls of under foam, 7 sticks of border and 3 packages of the flat pieces to divide kitchen floor and the new wood floor (can't remember what its called lol) Will for sure be installing this down the hall and into the master bedroom!
