Hardwood Floors — The (Almost) Finale

There’s been some more hardwood floor progress at the Dutch colonial!

The 3+ day job of sanding is done, + here’s the result:

Then what?  You ask.

Time to choose the stain color!

HA!  KIDDING!

Disclaimer: it wasn’t that bad at all!

I just think that cat photo spells C-O-M-E-D-Y!

Anyway, as I was saying, I wanted something on the light side,

so we chose Golden Oak:

It’s a tad darker than I had anticipated, but it’s still good.

The warm golden undertones match those of our oak kitchen island:

Our house’s beautiful original wood floors + woodwork

are the reasons we opted for an oak island.

Isn’t it great when a design plan comes together?

So.  Now that the floors have been stained,

it’s time for their poly finish coat,

which means yet another design choice.

How shiny (or not) do we go?  You ask.

Here’s my thought — our kitchen tiles have almost no sheen:

So to keep things flowing nicely, from room to room,

we chose a satin (low luster) poly finish.

The poly’s going down later today!

Next step: the rugs + furnishings stage, at long last!

Stay tuned!
