Oh my word, it's been AGES since I've given you a peek at our progress. Maybe that's because progress has been a bit slow. But this week we took a ginormous leap and there is a big, bright light at the end of the remodeling tunnel!...I hate that tunnel.
Nothing quite like the smell of sanding. Not pleasant. It took these guys the morning and part of the afternoon just to get that honey-colored finish off. Good riddance!
Then we get to the STAIN! We chose a Black Walnut color. It was so cool watching it go on the floors, I stood on the stairs and watched the whole process. The guys said they didn't mind, but I'm not sure they meant it.
Look at that grain!! I had no idea, the stain really brought it out. It looks amazing.
Aren't they gorgeous? The color is so rich and deep...it's like hickory smoked beef or something, I just love it. It looks great with our paint colors (oh yes! We've been painting! Something other than the green! More on that later...). We just love them...love love love. And now they're DONE! That means we can put everything back and install appliances and get this kitchen done. And how pretty are these? Pantries!
It's actually happening, BC fans. We're actually getting our kitchen. It's a Christmas miracle!
