Hi, I'm hoping that my blog and my experiences will help to encourage you. Our journey through life can be unpredictable at times but KNOW that if you are a believer in Christ, HE will always have your best interest at heart! (Even when things don't make sense!) Toodles

Cutting Under Door Jams

Standard

I borrowed this oscillating tool from a friend at work and it was a LIFE-SAVER!

I just put a piece of scrap flooring up against the door jam, set the blade on top and started it up. I just kept pressure on it and moved it left to right until I cut through the door trim.

Knocked out the cut piece with a hammer and screwdriver . . .

and slipped the flooring underneath!  It really was much easier than I was anticipating and it looks marvelous!!!  I need to ask for one of these tools for Christmas!!!  Jason . . . . Amie . . .  😉

Voila!! Done & I love my new rug from Overstock.com – the exact colors I wanted – too bad you’ll never see the middle again, LOL

Old closet – floor is done!  Now I need to get on the baseboards!!  If I put my furniture back – I’ll never get them done, so until then I’m sleeping in the guest room!
