Crafty (& Handy) Studio

Studio Floor, Finished

The studio looks good, even while empty! It’s amazing how much difference some molding can make – the new bamboo floor looks sharp.

Finished Bamboo Floor

Kim (Four Beds Two Baths) and Raya (The Paper Pony) are installing wood floors right now too… I’m looking forward to seeing their finished results!

    Very nice! We are debating whether or not to do it ourselves right now…720 sq. feet is a lot considering we also have to move the stove and refrigerator plus all the other furniture. And my 5 mo. pregnant self is not going to be much help! We’ll see, but I’m always inspired by how much you and your husband do and how quickly you get it done.

    That looks really beautiful. We put flooring in our basement this summer and I think everyone should do it. It looks so nice. We still have to put our trim on but I hope it looks half as nice as yours.

    Looks amazing, I love the dark wood!

    By the way, I was so excited when I found out you are in Oak Park! I’m in the area going to school to River Forest. :)

    […] looked like this originally (eek). Brandon and I put in the bamboo floor ourselves, painted (walls, ceiling, and trim), installed new closet doors, and switched out the ceiling […]
