The New Floor .... and a little bit of Jet

I LOVE MY NEW FLOOR!  Yes, I screamed that at the top of my lungs.  I feel like a grown-up now that my floors are not made of plywood any more.  We're no longer living in a house known for it's dorm-room-chic qualities.  Alright, we still have some funky things going on, but for the most part, the house is done.  Amen.  It's only been 14 1/2 years.

You probably think this is a nice hardwood floor.  You would be wrong.  It's linoleum.  Yup, linoleum.  The manufacturer uses a photograph of wood and somehow adheres it to some really heavy duty linoleum.  There's even real wood-like texture going on here.

A friend of Rick's, who has installed many hardwood floors over the years, made the comment: "Why would anyone get real wood?"

And here's Jet on his new bed, after his grooming yesterday.  I wuv him.

That is impressive linoleum! It does look like wood! Hooray!

And Jet looks so sweet!

Linoleum has come a loooong way, hasn't it? It totally had me fooled - I thought it was hardwood!

This floor really is pretty. I wish I could get the floors redone in my house.

At first glance, you would be convinced that what you’re looking it is actually hardwood flooring. Well, that’s a pretty cool linoleum material. It looks sturdy and beautiful. BTW, your pet Jet is so cute!
