Herringbone Wood Floors
I’d agree with Grace Potter and say, “oh-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

When I renovated the Bradford house, I obsessed about the floors. I really wanted to do reclaimed wood but it was a huge investment and I didn’t take it lightly. Take a look at this post from the past where I talked about fine French flooring. Maybe I was more dramatic in 2010? It sounds like I thought I might die of making a decision regarding hard wood flooring.

Nothing’s really changed here. I’m obsessing about the floors in the Eastwood project even though I promised Brad (the contractor) that I would not obsess this time.

I’m not going to be over-the-top.

I’ll let things go.

I’m not going to live there so I won’t be as emotionally invested.

I won’t obsess—cross my heart.

Famous. Last. Words. 

This is why I absolutely never ever say “hope to die” when I cross my heart. And that’s just dumb—nobody hopes to die or stick needles in their eyes.

Nothing’s changed. I still care about every detail. And I still think these floors are nothing short of oh-la-la.
