The new wood floor! :)


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.









Old floor is out!



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.






New wood going in

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.
