Moving Day and the New Floor!!!

You are going to have a chuckle over this one! While they were fixing up the mission pad they replaced the kitchen and bathroom floors. They are 12 x 12 tiles. The tiles look good but the minute we step on them glue oozes up between them. We told the Young's who did the reno and they came and replaced a few tiles and then used a heavy roller to press them down. The problem was bad glue we were told. Yea, problem solved..... or so we thought. We spent all day working on putting things away in the kitchen and stuck to the floor all day. Yuk!! We were carrying a can of paint thinner and a rag around with us all day rubbing gook off our feet.

I got thinking about how we could solve the problem. You have heard the old saying "Necessity is the Mother of Invention." Well, I said to Wall, " What if we use the duck tape we got for a white elephant gift from the elders and cover all the cracks in the floor and make a pattern. Hmmm was his reply. As you can see in the first picture he was trying out the idea. The second picture is the finished project. Isn't it divine? By the way the duck tape has leopard spots. We are tackling the bathroom next! It seems to be acting up.
