Hardwood flooring can be so darn expensive!

But luckily, HGTV hosts of "Home Town" — and authors of new book Make Something Good Today — Ben and Erin Napier have an awesome hack for classy-looking flooring that's easy on your wallet *and* easy to DIY.

"I never ever ever spend money on flooring," Rach admits. "I buy the cheapest possible, because I have a 65-pound pit bull with really long nails, so what's the point?!"
