Another Phase of my Office is Complete

I now have wood floors in my office!

I began the project on Thanksgiving Day and managed to get about 7 rows in before breaking for dinner.

The next morning, I was on a roll and managed to complete over 2/3 of the room before I ran out of glue.

I was scraping off the bottom of the can but it wasn’t enough to finish the rest of the room. Being that it was Black Friday, I was not about to go and venture out just for a can of glue so I decided to wait until the week after to complete. I did bring my area rug out to see how it would turn out though.

I also received a few more sunburst mirrors to add to the decor of the room. 🙂

Back to the glue – I debated for a while on whether or not to use the same Bostik glue as the rest of the room. It only comes in a 3.5 gallon container and is $160 at Lowes so I was hesitant at first. I was close to buying a different glue but remembered my glue fiasco in the living-dining room last year and opted for the same can (which will prompt me to add flooring to my master closet soon).

This past Friday, I finished and it took about 2 hours.

Given the look of the room, I’m once again debating the color of Lola. It would seem a bright color would be too much for the small room so I’m thinking of something understated. Stay tuned.
