Hi. I found this forum in order to show off the current project as well as future ones.

the old floor; ugly tile. was a pain to remove.

The kitchen and dining room already had wood floor, so that was just refinished and new wood to match was used in the living room.

More of a really dark brown.

What have I done 04-25-2011 05:46 AM

not a fan of the dark color, BUT you really did a nice job tying the new into the old. Nice staggered joints etc.

I agree with above...

Really nice workmanship.
Colors are individual choices.

Show us pics of the finished product with all the furniture in place.
I bet it will look stunning against the dark floors.

I posted earlier with a WTF? on the black/dark stain.
My knee-jerk reaction to a dark stain was unfavorable.

But with the accent colors and accessories like the window trim and the countertop brackets, it looks great.

Good for you...you had a vision and followed through with it.:thumbup:
