Saturday is always our big remodeling day. Zach finished the hardwood floors in the kitchen. You can see from the pictures below that it had a bad linoleum floor before and now has some nice hardwood flooring.

Floor before:

Floor after:

I also finished scraping a popcorn ceiling in the last room downstairs. It's messy and a big pain but the end result is so worth it!

We are down to our final room which is the first floor master bedroom. We are putting hardwood floors in the bedroom so I was ripping up the old carpet nail strips that line the wall where the old carpet used to be. I was ripping these strips up with a pry bar while NOT wearing anything to protect my eyes. I was moving rather quickly and had a nail fly up into my eye and cut my eyeball! It hurt, I thought I was going to lose my sight but I didn't. It's been bloodshot for 4 days now but the pain has gone away. Lesson learned: always cover your eyes when using a prybar and removing nails from concrete.

I am impressed to read about your remodeling. I had no idea you were such a demolition chic.
