Day 2 of refinishing the floors is complete and visible progress has been made. Although, it does look very similar to Wednesday’s progress – LOTS OF SANDING.
I stopped by the house Thursday afternoon at lunch with my coworker. There were more people working than there were yesterday. Nearly everything looked sanded.
Thursday afternoon it was all better!
It would have been nice to salvage the old boards but they were badly damaged. I hope staining blends the patched spots in with the original floors. But, even if it doesn’t, it’s worlds better than the old damage.
Both staircases have also been scraped & sanded.
As of lunch, the downstairs needed to be sanded again. You can still see our stain samples.
Staining was also supposed to happen at the end of the day. When I walked by after work it looked like they were cleaning up sawdust. So I’m hopeful we’re still on schedule.
Once they stain & start putting down the poly, I’m not sure we’ll be able to walk on it. Therefore in-progress pictures may be iffy.
But that means you have more time to weigh in on our stain options!! If you haven’t put in your 2 cents yet, here’s a refresher.
These are the stains we’re choosing from:
