Not a whole lot going on right now. We are working all the time on something and have a few major victories but it sure seems slow going. And nothing really blog-worthy. I can't do anything very crafty since I have no workspace and most of my supplies are packed away.
Dear Hubby and Computer Geek went to pick up our new flooring this morning.
This is supposed to be 725 square feet.
It is tongue & groove white pine. A very soft wood but we know that. We expect dings and scratches along the way. While our house isn't a farmhouse, it is farmhouse style. This will fit perfect. We have narrowed the stain color down to Minwax Early American stain (on the left) and Minwax Golden Oak (on the right).
I know they are both close but one has a little more brown and one a little more yellow. We are going to have to play with some more samples for a few more days.
So after letting the wood acclimate for a week, going out of town for a week or more, several days of putting the floor down, 2 days of staining, 7 to 10 days of sealer and sealer curing. . . . . well, we're looking at another 6 weeks before we can even think about putting things back where they belong.
I can't wait to see the final product and to show you!
