It’s been a long road finishing up this space, but we’re getting closer! The floor was cleaned up of construction dust...
...and a few repairs were made...
...to get ready for Jeff, The Floor Guy, to do his thing. We do most things around here, but some things are better left to the professionals. In this case, there's really an art to making these floors come back to life. A while back, Jeff completed the third floor
and then the dining room
. Now, it's finally time for him to give the living room floor some lovin'!
He started by sanding these original floor boards and painstakingly resetting all of the nails.
There are lots of tight corners and obstacles to bring this floor back to life.
Next, after being sanded to perfection, stain is applied...
...to enhance the natural beauty of these pine floors.
One coat of finish, two more to go!
