After they did the above, they screwed up the floors with the finish. We were so mad that I couldn't take pictures of it. It was bad. I think they got the hint since I am the passive one saying to them we have to hire someone else.
Back to the drawing board and we have 2 more stains going on in the morning. Shots of 2 stains so far of ebony. They will be applying an oil based satin finished a couple days later. So much better and actually looks right now.
We weren't expecting perfection and I am very happy with the paint job. The owner of the company does seem pretty reasonable and is proud of his work. That was good enough for me to give them another chance.
