floor finished! hope you like the pictures!

March 19th, 2009 at 10:22 am

Well, our internet gets disconnected tomorrow and hopefully re-connected late next week. I will still have internet atwork on Wednesday though.

I thought it was time to upload a couple of photos of our finished floor. DF did the finishing touches at 7pm on Tuesday night. I have put them in order of before and after:

office (before)

office (after)

spare room #1 (before)

spare room #1 (after)

kitchen (before)

kitchen (after)

main bedroom (before)

main bedroom (after)

I think it looks great. And the best bit? It cost us around $35, paying for DF's dad and my little brother and sisters lunch lol. The coating mixture we used cost $400 but DF's dad paid for it. I sure love being able to do stuff ourselves.

Anyway, I just wanted to share some pictures with you. Hope you like them!!!

    Absolutely beautiful!! You guys did a wonderful job!

    I am finding hardwood or laminate floors so much easier to clean with all the pet hair that floats around here. Plus throw rugs can always be added if someone wants them.

    The floors are beautiful. We love how they look in our home as well. Yes, the pet hair does float around more, and hubby complains about it, but it is easier to get it up and know it's gone instead of just sitting in the carpet!

    Good job! And thanks for sharing!

    Gorgeous! I can't wait until we can rip-up our carpet and do the same (I hate carpet).

    Absolutely beautiful! We love our hardwood floors because the stuff that would have gone into the carpet and stayed there now can be seen and cleaned up. When you are allergic to dust, that is a huge relief for your allergies.
