Floors...once the work starts on the floor and the kitchen cabinets~ it all starts REALLY coming together! The floors have been ALOT of work and moments I look at them and my breath is taken away and then other times, I do the same- because- well, they still need work. Overall...they are amazing and clearly, the icing on the cake.
When I bought the house, I knew right away the downstairs living room, dining room and bedrooms were covered in this amazing and beautiful flooring-even under piles of garbage, dirt, pet wastes and mold. What has come to a surprise has been the 18" wide plank pine and the kitchen floor was a mess...it was under 5 layers of super ugly linoleum~ and even more of the same from the other rooms. That floor was a black, yucky goo with lots of water stains and needed lots of repairs. The verdict is still out about how it will blend when everything gets put together but I do love its rustic nature. It is perfectly imperfect and tells the story of this 130 year old beauty.
So, as we start bringing this project to a finish, the stories this house are still being told!
