Brick Floor

brick entireThe new flooring was installed this week in the mudroom, half bath, laundry room and kitchen.

This brick is in the entryway and mud area.  It is my very favorite thing in this whole world!  I cannot believe how much I LOVE it!  Isn’t it cool?  The bricks are actual building bricks from old Chicago buildings.  They have so much character, as you can see in the photo below.

The Laundry Room – Plank Tile Floor

laundryThe laundry room (above) has plank tiles that looks like distressed wood.  The tile was still wet when I took the photograph.  It really does look like a wood floor.  I’m so excited to have such a big laundry room.  I might just move into that room!!

half bathThe half bath (above) hasn’t been grouted yet.  We chose a dark slate tile – it kinda looks like a chalkboard.

And now for the KITCHEN…
