here's a picture of the little peanut :) this is her room that i'm showing photos of this post!
here were the floors before they were sanded, after sanding and right after the stain and poly went on...they look shinier than they will be..the poly was still wet. but i chose a satin finish. im not a glossy hardwood floor kind of gal! so, i originally had the vision of having dark stained floors throughout the house...i was talked out of it. ended up going with a warm medium nutmeg color. i have to say, they look amazing! the guy that did them does AMAZING work!!!
|they were actually in great shape. the carpet had been covering them for DECADES. i'm pretty sure the carpet was from the 60's! this is a 'before'|
|we had to pull all the staples out before the sanding started|
|whoohooo!!! almost ready for the stain!|
here are a few photos of the original trim put back on. its so pretty.....don't let the sanding spots, the multiple colors of paint or the roughness of it scare you....you have to look past all of that and imagine what it will be like once it has a coat of fresh paint on it! the detail of it is gorgeous!
|look at ALL of those pieces....i'm still thinking 'hell'.|
|looks in pretty rough shape here! but its all intact and ready for new paint|
it's moving along! the next room we'll finish trim in, is the guest room. the floors are finished in there too. the only room that doesnt have trim is the bathroom. at some point in the 80's it was remodeled and the big original trim was taken out and replaced with some ugly 80's floor tile. sad. so we will have to find some trim for that room from a salvage place.
here's a sneak peek at the kitchen floor!! the next post will be about this room. i'm LOVING how its turning out!! cabinets are going to be installed this weekend hopefully!
