Look at my floor..

After much to-ing and fro-ing we have finally decided to do the kitchen..we found tins of cupboard paint and tile paint..we already have a huge tin of white emulsion just need some gloss..having chosen the colours we want it was crunch time..what to do with the floor..being honest all we have done is put floor tiles down ..there were 3 layers plus the original flooring..we spent some money and bought some Glue remover..it was strong stuff but thankfully we didn't need it all..only a small amount was used and that stunk to high heaven..the dog was sniffing and rolling around the floor..had to put him outside and the girls went upstairs..we had the doors open and windows..it reeked for ages.
So now i have no floor..just concrete..which isn't that bad.. we found a crack in the floor which will be filled in..Simon is going to level it all so new tiles sit properly and don't crack and move about.

Crack in the floor

The concrete is where the original pantry was..it was taken out before we got the house otherwise i would have kept it

Doesn't look too bad..considering its the first time the floor has seen daylight for 30 odd years
Will keep you all updated on the kitchen redo
