These floors were about to get the best of us, but we stayed determined! =)
Nathan didn't want his picture taken. He really didn't sand the floors in this position!
I was going a little crazy with this process... as you can see =)
Dad and Nathan stained most of the house and Leisa (Nathan's Mom) helped with the living room and dining room. Thank you - we appreciate it!!
This is the closest to color in real life. It was hard to get a good picture of the finished floors.
Nathan came back to the house the next evening and put a second coat of stain down on everything! It looked great. For the floors being old, there are a few spots we couldn't make look perfect. However, I am thrilled with the results!
The stain we used is Special Walnut by Minwax. It looked a lot lighter on the can than it does on our floors. We wanted the darker look though, so we are happy.
