Before & After: Hardwood Floors

Before & After: Hardwood Floors
When we bought our house, the oak hardwood floors were in bad shape. The living room, dining room and back hall were stained a dark cherry that the previous owner did on their own, which means there were swirl marks from the sander and the corners weren't done properly plus there were scratches galore. The front bedroom (our guest bedroom) floor was unstained and a gorgeous color but had some pretty rough spots. The back bedroom (our den) still had carpet, which we tore out on our closing day, and again the floor was unstained but was a big mess with water damage and scratches. We thankfully found an amazing guy to refinish our floors at a remarkably reasonable price and since we had a month overlap with our lease we had all the floors refinished before we moved in. It was by far one of the best investments we've made in our new house!

Yesterday morning, I dropped my mom off at the airport. She was in town for a week and as usual was a big help around the house. We organized half of the basement, which will make doing laundry much easier and started painting the upstairs bedroom. I'm still painting away upstairs and my back and hands are definitely aching, but it's already looking sooooo good!
