Kitchen floor reveal

It is done!!! 
Today Greg nailed the last few pieces of trim in place and the kitchen floor is finally finished!
The girls and I moved all the furniture out a little over a week ago and then I spent the rest of the afternoon taking out the linoleum.
Greg started tiling the following day and between work, letting things dry... it took a little longer than expected.
Totally worth it though, I adore the new flooring.

Endlich ist es fertig!!
Greg hat heute die letzten Leisten festgenagelt und der Kuechenboden ist komplett fertig gefliest!
Vor einer Wochen haben die Maedels und ich die Moebel rausgerueckt und ich habe den Rest des Nachmittags damit verbracht das Linoleum herauszureissen.
Am naechsten Tag hat Greg angefangen zu fliesen - zwischen Arbeit, Zeit alles trocknen zu lassen hat es etwas laenger gedauert bis es fertig war.
War's aber wert, mir gefaellt der neue Boden viel besser als das alte Linoleum.



 The real color is sort of between these two photos. It's not quite that brown and not quite that grey... Closer to the grey than the brown though. A bit difficult to get a good picture of...

Die "richtige" Farbe der Fliesen ist eine Kombination zwischen diesen beiden Photos. Sie sind nicht ganz so braun, aber auch nicht ganz so grau... Jedoch eher grau als braun. War etwas schwer die genaue Farbe festzuhalten...
