The stain went down after they finished day 2 of sanding (last Thursday).
It was the very last thing they did before leaving and they stained their way out of the house (top to bottom, back to front, right out the front door).
I stopped by after work to take a peak. Of course things were still drying, so I only peered in from the front door.
My very first peek at the color.
More pics with the poly tomorrow!
