Karndean Vinyl Flooring Install

We are going strong here in renoland, and I gotta say, install day is quickly becoming the Kyla’s really happy day. It’s when everything comes together, and the vision that’s resided inside my head transforms into reality. AHHHHH! Last Monday, I shared the tile and wallpaper install in the basement bathroom, and today I’m sharing the Karndean vinyl flooring install. It looks incredible, and I’m so excited to share it with you. Somebody better PINCH ME!

Basement Bathroom Design Update

At the end of December, I dropped a bomb post stating I was certifiably insane. Yup, I started another bathroom renovation, but it was necessary. That basement bathroom was so dingy and yuck; there was no excuse not to update it. As long as we’re getting dusty and Gerry and his crew was at the house anyway, why not knock it all out, right? Bring out the sledgehammer guys! Let’s get to work!

How To Start A Collection

Happy Thursday! Erica Reitman, The Design Ninja Extraordinaire, is stopping over today to talk about how to start a collection. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a ton…trophies, indigo, navy books, vintage barware…errrrmmmm *cough* chairs…ya let’s not go there, but sometimes it all goes in a box. I never know what to do with it all. Anyhoo, no matter what it is that you’re drawn to, Erica’s here to tell you to snap that shiz up and put it on display. Now excuse me while I go start my “Buy Me This” Pinterest board. 

Needlepoints with exotic animal imagery, baskets of all shapes and sizes, large ashtrays, iced tea spoons, rocks glasses, vintage matchbooks…these are just a few of the bizarro things I’ve decided to collect over the years.

Basement Update — Drywall and Karndean Flooring

Thankfully things are really starting to come together on the basement. Like, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel, and it isn’t fogged up with construction dust. All in all, Gerry and his crew have made the whole process smooth sailing, but I can officially say drywalling is the worst. Word to the wise — the smartest thing we did was shrink wrapping everything exposed in the basement. The sofa, photo booth, pool table, coffee table…every single thing that was left out, was shrink wrapped, covered in tarps, and sealed up tight.
