Last Thursday we added hardwoods in the hallway to our bedrooms and in our master bedroom. The week before, they dropped the boxes of hardwoods off so they could get used to our house and so they wouldn't expand and contract once they were laid. Here they all are...we used pre-finished hardwoods because we didn't want the mess of sanding and staining. This was still a mess as it was because of undoing our room and putting it back together. Plus it is just a dirty mess with cutting boards etc. I was up late cleaning and washing sheets on Thursday night! In our new house we will have plain boards laid and we will stain in place since it'll be a construction zone anyway.
Anyone else a crazy person about cords from their TV? We do not like cords so when the chest is in front of it, you cannot see anything hanging from the TV to the box. It's all in the wall. You can see the cords coming out at the base in the below picture (usually we have a chest of drawers sitting in front of the outlets).
These guys worked all day long and finished it in one day. I kept them fed and hydrated via dominos and water bottles!
Here are some before and after shots....
As you can see, we tried to match as close as possible what we have in the remainder of our house. We really need to refinish the rest of the hardwoods as they haven't been touched since 1999 when the house was built! We will not be doing that when we live here ha!
