Unintentional progress just happened in the kitchen!
This wasn't even part of my 2014 Home Project Goals...it just sort of happened.
You see....we're kind of spontaneous when it comes to upgrading our builder grade home.
When my hubby and I left for our date that night we had no idea that we would end up coming home to prep our vinyl flooring for FAUX WOOD TILE!
After dinner we ended up in Home Depot, which is not unusual for date night, only we left with a little more than our usual spray paint, light bulbs and weed killer.
The faux wood tiles caught my hubby's eyes first and I approved.
End of story.
It was going to be a DIY (and messy) weekend and week.
But so worth it!!
Even though the vinyl flooring was in great shape, it wasn't really doing anything for the other upgrades that had been done. It sort of just blended in with the cabinets we painted in antique white and they didn't stand out like they should.
Here is another before of the floor:
We ended up placing the tile directly on top of the original floor since it's a relatively new house and we knew there were no issues in the support under the flooring. We just sanded the vinyl flooring really well.
And by "we" I mean my awesome hubby! I did absolutely nothing but help clear furniture and try my very best to not lose it while living with our kitchen in my office space for a week.
And this is what progress looked like:
We went with faux wood tile since it's more durable and budget friendly. And honestly, you can't even tell that it's tile since the grout color blends in beautifully with the wood tones of the tile.
I am so happy with the way the cream cabinets stand out against the rustic wood tones of the flooring! It's the perfect contrast for me!
And a few more afters...why not?!
Definitely worth the week of disorganized chaos that went on here!
In case you are wondering what tile we used, it's the Marazzi Montagna Porcelein Tile in Rustic Bay.
And I haven't forgotten about our Master Bathroom reveal!! There's just a few more little details to be done and I will be blogging about it!
And sometime this summer our master bedroom is going to get a much needed makeover!
This one just snuck up on us and I had to share!
Has Spring inspired you to DIY or upgrade?
