One man's trash...

One of the things the previous owners were supposed to do before they left was sand all the hardwood floors so we could finish them (when we still thought we could save the original floors).  To make a long story short, they skimped a bit and ended up putting peel and stick wood-look tiles in some of the upstairs to cover some areas they didn't sand.  To say the least, a blind man could see that they obviously didn't match. 
The tiles themselves weren't THAT ugly so I decided to take them all up and put them down in our storage room to cover up the gross cracked concrete floor.  Is it perfect? No.  Is it flat? No.  But it's a heck of a lot easier, prettier, and CHEAPER than laying a new concrete floor down there and the main goal of covering up the 'yuck' down there was achieved.  Next step is painting the plywood.
