New floor

Friday morning I started laying vinyl tiles (which came right to my door
on Thursday, all 110 pounds-free shipping) on my dining room floor.
I started in a corner, as opposed to starting in the center of the room-as the directions
say you are to do.  I'm such a rebel.  I'd move a piece of furniture away from the
wall-tile that spot, and then carefully move that piece back-and so on and
so on and so on.  I completed the tiling last evening.   I finished cleaning
 up the joint this morning and then I took some photos, so I can remember
what it looks like clean-since it won't be that way for long.

::1st row-I worked my way across the far wall.
::2nd row-Heading towards the center of the room and also my
cutting tool of choice-which was my rotary fabric cutter.  I'm sure I
ruined the blade, but I have more.
::3rd row-Working my way to the end of the room.
::4th row-The last tile, my pile of garbage, and the finished product.

All done!

The best parts are-I did it myself! and it cost approximately $90.00!
 and it's clean! and it will be easy TO clean! and I did it myself! and it cost
 90 bucks! and it's clean!

Have a good weekend everybody.
