Hello friends, I hope your week is off to a good start so far. Apologies to my subscribers who received an email this morning about this post; I published it prematurely. After some editing, here it is again. 🙂
I’m happy to share that our hardwood floors are finished! After walking and working on sub-floor downstairs for such a long time (nearly 2 years), it’s hard to believe these newly finished floors are really ours.
Downstairs, we installed new white oak flooring, which I talked about how it was made HERE. As I have been looking back at our progress over the years, I must say the transformation is quite incredible. I hope Grandma would be pleased.
The new hardwood flooring covers the entirety of the main level, except for the bathroom and mudroom – both of which will get stone tile instead.
We chose not to stain the raw white oak, rather we just applied a clear coat satin finish.
Upstairs, we had the old yellow pine floors (which I talked about HERE) sanded and professionally painted. We’re very happy with how they turned out also.
After sanding, a heavy duty primer was applied before coating the floors in two coats of floor-paint.
Lastly, a clear satin topcoat was applied.
The color I chose for the floors was Ben Moore’s Swiss Coffee.
This color will go well with Ballet White and Simply White, both of which we’re using upstairs on other surfaces (walls and ceilings).
I hope you enjoyed this quick tour of our flooring updates so far. Our bathroom tile should arrive here sometime this week, so we’ve been busy prepping sub-floors for it.
Looking forward to sharing finished tile floors with y’all soon. Catch glimpses of the action between posts on my Instagram.
Until next time,
