I hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did, although I am still tired.
The floors were done on Saturday and I spent Sunday, cleaning up the dust that got everywhere from the guys cutting into the brick of the fireplace for the floor and then bringing the books in.
We decided that the new baseboards behind the bookcases, with just a couple of thin coats of paint will not get the formal painter's touch. I just had to get the bookcases back and books too, as they were sitting on dropcloths in the garage for about three weeks...
So, everything else is on felt pads and can be moved, so that the painter can finish off baseboards and paint the newly patched wall.
In general, we are so happy with our floors. Kinda like living in a model home, and I have become a bit OCD about cleaning. That is what the Bona swiffer and Miele vacuum is for!
Here are some views that I took this gloomy morning.
And here is the family room, with the books....
All in all, a great choice of floor covering for us...It is a medium dark color with lots of variation to go with variety of dark furniture (and some light) that we have inherited and collected. Every piece of furniture, even the Lazy Boy chairs, has a story to tell. That is very cool.
Hope you have a great day.
I had a question from a reader....the floor is Garrison's Southern Carolina Classics, a 5"w with random length planks, and it is hickory...hope that helps.....
