A Floor Story
The floors are done. OK. Bye!
|Kitchen floor before floors were removed.|
|Kitchen floor after old floors removed.|
|When we removed the wall between the foyer (left) and living (right), there were posts and studs that had to be removed.|
|They were removed and replaced with mini joists for one board to be laid to cover the seam.|
While the foundation was open we took a moment to write our names next to a previous owner (John circa 1890's-ish) and remind ourselves that our house is "founded on the Rock." Matthew 7:24
I never in my life thought I would have so many dreams and sleepless nights about stains and poly. That was a case of too much googling before bedtime.
|Top right was the oil based poly. See how it is reddish. Middle small section is water based - see how the grain shows up so much better? Surrounding was a tung oil we tried.|
|Comparing Water based (top) to oil based (bottom)|
|Water based won out! Could hardly tell it was on there!|
|See the tiny bubbles dried in?|
Let the dance parties, finger paint spills, hotwheel races, toy tractor driving and constant sweeping begin. Can I get one of these please?
