    Very, very nice! I love the simplicity of white walls and how it really lets the wood floors pop.

    Wow! Really nice work! How long did it take? Really love the floors.

      Thanks Lauren! It took us one full weekend to finish the cabinets, and then the following weekend we laid the floor. The floor took a lot quicker than we thought it would, and since the hallway is so narrow compared to a larger room, a lot of the time was spent cutting, measuring each row and picking out the right pieces.
