Last year around this time, I kicked off my kitchen remodel and two months and new cabinet doors/quartz counters/stainless appliances later, this culinary nook was really starting to take shape…but one terrible eyesore remained: The scary linoleum floors. For this January’s welcoming-in-the-new-year project, we are kissing the old floors goodbye.
Every good DIY project comes with a healthy dose of demo, so the quarter round and metal trim between the kitchen floors and hardwoods hit the curb.
Somehow in my mind, I envisioned that the linoleum would roll up nicely and we could haul it out in sizeable chunks. I knew better, but I just couldn’t ditch those rose colored glasses. After two hours of chipping, not even a third of the kitchen floor was up.
After a quick trip to Dad’s to pick up his floor removal tool, we were back in business.
(Insert precious puppy supervisor picture here.)
4 hours later, the floors were up and Michael was really starting to see the type of DIY monster he moved in with. Good news is that I think he’s catching the bug too.
