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!

Just picked these up at Target in the Christmas goodies section!  Betty Crocker’s Gingerbread Cookie Mix – These are the best and they only have them during the holidays.  I use the recipe on the package but I roll them into balls and them roll them in sugar before I bake them.  They are sooooo good with a cup of tea (or coffee or by themselves, lol)!  LOVE
