They are like quiet shellacing ninjas.



I woke up this morning and Brett the floor guy was applying the last bits of his shiny finish/varnish whatever you call it coat to the floors. I forgot they were coming this weekend. I am sure my contractor told me this, but I think I had the days mixed up in my head. Oy. Anyway, what's done is done. The floors continue to look red in the photos but not in real life. I like they way they look. I *may* have asked them to do one more dark coat, but I like them as they are so we're happy here.

As for my pug, Rickey, what kind of guard dog is he? He didn't bark at all when the floors guys quietly let themselves in to finish the floors. That dog. I tell ya. He needs a job.

They are BEE-YOU-tiful! That color is amazing.

Nope; not Rickie's fault. Dogs are very smart: he knew that the floor guys were going to use their powers for good, and they DID.

Perfect! As I was reading your post I was thinking- I don't think she should put on another coat of stain, the topcoat will make it just perfect!- Great minds think alike but I knew that as soon as I saw that you had a catagory for white rooms...

The floors look beautiful. As for Rickey, I don't know. What, did the floor guys have steak in their pockets? Too funny!

Oh lord, my house is so unimpressive. I will post a tour maybe in 2 years when I've made more progress.

I should post the original before photos... right after we bought it. Then you would all cry for me. Seriously.

i love dark floors. mine are darker than the ones we had growing up, but i sometimes wish they were darker. your dog is like my cat: one night we were sitting n the sofa and we heard a loud crash. she SHOT off the couch, TURNED IN MID-AIR, and dove under the sofa.

Our pug sometimes barks 5 or 10 minutes after someone comes to the door and is already gone.

those floors are gorgeous; our dog is the opposite. The mailman comes every day same time and he goes insane...which is horrible when you've just gotten an exhausted baby to take a nap.

Love the color of the floors. Do you know what stain/color they used? We are doing ours in 2 weeks!

Absolutely GORGEOUS! Glossy, dark floors...yummmy. In my opinion, get your floors right and your walls right, everything else falls into place.
