A New Floor

When I moved into my house two years ago, one of the first jobs was tearing up old nasty floors. The living room was first, and under the aged carpet was a gorgeous hardwood floor - it didn't even need refinishing. The kitchen was next, and under the scummy linoleum was another hardwood floor, not so gorgeous. Linoleum is a nasty business, especially since the installers glued it to the floor. We scraped that thing for an entire day, flooding it with water and working at it with putty knives. Never again.

Anyway, that was the end of floor work for a while, but the combination of the fresh, bright walls and the brown mottled floor kept bugging me. So a few months ago I bought paint. And yesterday I finally got around to painting.

Actually, in this light it looks kinda nice, the next one is closer to the truth...

So nice. I love the color.

I kept stepping in the paint. It's difficult to paint a kitchen floor - how are you supposed to get to the fridge?

Love it.

So, unless your post-tax earnings on the savings are greater than the cost of the loan minus the value of the tax break, it's better to pay cash. Remember that if you pay 2k in interest in a year, your tax break is not worth 2k. It is worth your tax rate times 2k.
