Did I mention I hate my foyer floor?

As we are working around the house, something will get fixed and cleaned and other things happen!!! Bad things!!!
Like you find more work that needs to be done and more things need upgrading, which leads to more money!!!
The whole house has wood floors and I love them!! But my foyer....... now in my opinion it should all be matching. Hubby at first, didn't want to put the wood there because of the moisture by the door, but I guess my constant bickering about the floor is getting him to change his mind.
So now one weekend he will lift up the 2 layers of linolium and break the ceramic tile underneath, level the floor and put down the wood.
Now we run into a small problem.... I bought the floor at Sams Club last year and I need to make sure they still have it!!!
So thats my job right now.... off to Sams to find my floor and hope they still carry it!!!
I'll update you all on my adventures!!

So the weekend we finished up with touch ups and I got a great idea for the foyer doors. We have our front door and the garage door here and I wanted crown moulding, but as we all know that can be pricy.
So I - yes- me, myself and I- came up with the idea to make our own crown moulding for above the door.
At Lowes I bought 1"x 4 and the pretty blocks and we made our own.
How do you like them?

I think they add detail and a more custom look to the house.
After we finish the floor in the foyer, then I am on my way to find a new front door.
Going to any home improvement store would be too easy for me!!!
I am going to set off to save a few dollars and look on craigslist and thrift stores with building materials to find my perfect door!!
A beautiful door with an oval window !!!!
Can't wait to replace the door!!! I'm sure it will look great!!!!
So off I go to on my adventures of making our house a home!!!
