Remodelaholic in Review: July 2017
I can’t believe that I am recapping July right now! What happened to summer? Fall is creeping up on us, which is fine, but then before we know it winter will be here and a whole new year will be starting. I am being a bit dramatic and fast-forwarding time a bit but doesn’t it feel like time just flies by far too quickly? We hope that you are having a great summer and that you have been able to do many of the things you were looking forward to! We have had a fun summer and while July was busy, we really enjoyed it! This month we did a fun theme week focused on 2×4 and More structural lumber! There are so many great projects you can do with them, we hope you were inspired by some and decided to make some of the projects for yourself! We always love to see what you are working on too! Share your pictures on Facebook (you can message us, and we’ll add it to our Fan Features album).
This month Cassity shared her recent visit to her sister’s home where she got to see her new Waterproof Wood-look Flooring! They are gorgeous and look just like real hardwood with great texture and a pretty sheen, but leaves behind the annoying parts of hardwood floors. She shared all the fun before and after photos that we love to see plus the benefits of using Shaw’s new product, Floorté. Take note because when you update your flooring, you will want to remember this!
