Who does that? ME!
Don't worry: I am well aware how so very weird I am to be THIS elated about floors... but on to the saaaale!
As you know- I'm a savings HUNTER - let no Menards be left behind! That's not really my motto...but it might be moving forward.
We originally thought we were going to go with Lumber Liquidators. They are having their biggest sale of the YEAR this weekend. I mean, you can't talk like that and not expect me to get goosebumps. As you know from this post- we figured laminate was really the only option for us + the durability we needed.
Then we found out we know a guy who knows a guy. That "guy" (how shady does THAT sound?) would sell us flooring
We stopped by Floor & Decor's Grand Opening in Arlington Heights yesterday. We had even previously decided: unless there was something that would BLOW us away... we would stick with our "guy".
First clue something big was up: there was not ONE person who left without loading up their car with supplies or at minimum a gigantic bag.
We walk in and feast our eyes on this beauty:
|Oak Night Time now is ours!|
1430 sq ft. later (our house is 1300 + you add 10% for any bad pieces, cutting etc) - we have our flooring! We were so excited about it that we even bought 110 sq ft. of porcelain tile too for our future flooring in our bathroom. I mean, at 39 cents/sq foot, we just had to!
|Glacier Bay sounds lovely this time of year|
Plus, we were not researched at all in tile (our focus has been laminate and hardwood only up until now) so we didn't really know if the price was amazing or not. Just make sure when you are in the midst of sale insanity to keep your cool and know your prices. With our tiling being a "phase 2" project- we have time to wait out a good deal.
So there ya have it- flooring obtained!
Next project: buying the rest of our paint. Can.Not.Wait.
Happy weekending everyone!
