Bedroom before we moved in
|The floors in both rooms were taken up board by board and|
Brad leveled out the joists, taking out all the squeaks.
|Put the floor back down in both rooms |
and sanded off the old brown stain.
|I got to beat up the floor with chains and rub charcoal in|
the marks to help some new boards blend in.
|Thought about staining dark, but we loved|
the way it looked after sanding, so it just
got polyurethane instead
|Somewhere in the process of 4 coats of poly|
My favorite part of the floors now is every knick and scratch. It all tells a part of our home's story, and I could get lost in it, wondering what caused this weird mark, or that patch of wear. It's a great sign of a well worn and loved house.
Check back soon for an update on how the bathroom is coming along. White subway tile galore!
