Who Knew Choosing Floors Was So Fun Yet Difficult

I Love My New Floors

If you have never stopped to think about the beauty of stained concrete floors in your home then you are missing out on a true gem.   I had mentioned previously in another post that I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with my home.  I couldn’t decide between hardwoods or stained concrete, and after much deliberation I finally made a decision that I am so happy with I can’t wait to share it with everyone.  The results turned out fantastic, and the guys I hired to do the job were top-notch professionals.

Drumroll please…

I chose to go with the stained concrete.

Why Stained Concrete?

Kitchen FloorWith all of the research I had been doing I finally talked with Craig at Premier Concrete Staining of Frisco.  He talked me through all the benefits of stained concrete and after our conversation I was hooked and knew that I didn’t want to go with anything else at this point.   The customer service I received from them was amazing and the prices were great too.   I can’t say enough good things about this company and how they did such a great job on my floors.

Take a look for yourself.  Here is a picture of the kitchen and I absolutely love the result.  Maybe it is just because it is mine, but I love it, and cant stop smiling at the results.  This girl is happy, happy, happy.

Labor Day Turned Into Labor Day For Me

Labor Day Made Me Tired

Hello peeps, I hope you all had a great and fun Labor Day weekend.  I was able to spend some time with my family, and we actually did some real hard labor for the holiday weekend.   It was fun, and hard work all at the same time.   Working as a team with a lot of my family members made it not seem like work at all.   Have you ever been on a group build for like Habit For Humanity?  That is what this seemed like even though it was simply a family event.

So we had my aunts, uncles, cousins, and a few friends all gather at my grandmother’s home during the long weekend.  All together we had like 25 people there at her house, so it was kind of like a big family reunion, but a working reunion.  She lives out in west Texas in a town called Lubbock.  You probably have heard of it if you are from Texas.   Anyway she is getting up there in years and simply needed a few things done around the house to help keep it from falling apart around her.

My cousin Jared works for a fence repair company in Lubbock, so he, and I along with a couple of our other cousins were assigned to work on the fence.  Jared was a great “boss” (that is what I kept calling him) during the weekend.  He has learned a lot about building fences, repair and also staining fences since he started working for that company.   My grandmother’s fence still has a few years left on it, but just needed to be freshened up, so we are trying to make it last a while longer before having to buy a new one.
