We are (almost) DONE!


We have finally finished the living room redo! Now, we just need to do some finishing touches with a little bit of decorating. (and, we still need to move in our desk that had to be taken to Dustin’s parents’ house)

I still can’t believe this is the same room!

The treadmill corner has been turned into a nice reading corner that just needs a little rug.

We also moved the antenna cable (we’re too cheap for real Cable, folks!) so the room is now oriented differently. It seems to help make better use of some of the space up here.  (The furniture even just looks cleaner and newer in the new room!)

This entertainment center was huge in our downstairs living room. Up here, it is itty bitty!

The treadmill, unfortunately, had to stay in this room (It was assembled in here, we can’t take it out unless it is in pieces!). The recliner also now has a dark brown slip cover that is currently in the washer.


We love, love, love, love, love this new room!


And, I PROMISE, the next post will be a tutorial of how we did the pine plywood plank flooring (and a few tips of what NOT to do like us)


  1. I am so happy for you! The room looks gorgeous! Such a great room you have.
    I can't wait to hear all the details!


  2. This is a great idea! I know because I did this is my sons room.Trying to save money and his carpet was destroyed(wasnt going there again)It cast about 125.oo uncluding stain and the plywood.You can save time by having the HIMP store cut for you each plank. They didnt charge me for the cuts.The room is about a 10x12 and I did it 5years ago.Has held up well.Make sure you protect floor from furniture w/felt pads on bottom of legs!

  3. I love it! I have cabins that I would like to change the floors, this one is perfect for it. Great idea!

  4. The idea is so cool and simple, my room is of same length. Guess i have to steal your plan :-)

  5. Just wondering how you would do that plywood plank flooring to a slab? We are redoing our floors and that is wonderful.

  6. I was just curious how the floor has held up? We are truly wanting to redo our floors, but lack the fund for actual hardwood, but NEED to get rid of this off white, old carpeting. What type of plywood did you use, and did you cut it yourself?

  7. Love the look! How has it stood up to wrapping or the gaps cracking?
