We still have some doors to re-hang, and just over all cleaning up, but for the most part it's finished! We love the tile. I'm very pleased with the pattern we chose too. I didn't want something that had a straight line of grout, and this pattern worked perfectly.
As promised, here are some photos. This first picture is our living room taken from the front door. You can see a little bit of a wooden column there. There were two columns with little railings on either side. We had those removed.
Here is our living room now. We got a new coffee table and end table as well as a new recliner. We needed a new recliner, and even though the tables we had were decent, we decided to go with something a little smaller. The little rug is just there to protect the floors from the table until we get our new rug. It's supposed to be here at the end of the week.
Here is our kitchen before (see Baxter coming in to say hi?)

here are a couple of pictures of the dogs tired out after a day of renovation - this is the floors scraped down to the cement. Riley in the laundry room

Once I have my craft room back I will make some cards and life can return to normal!
