Finished floor Comparison- Dining room

The picture says it all.  The floors turned out fantastic.  Now we must finished the baseboards and walls. We will be living in the house in 5 more day – still without a kitchen.  I will protect these floor like a maniac.  I am going to buy The cardboard roll stuff, called Ram Board, show below, while we paint and work on various other things.

I am super pleased with the color and finish.  Here’s a close up look at the living room.

Yay!

Dining Room – before

This is the dining room. As you can see the floors need a total overhaul.  But the leaded cabinets are in great shape.  These windows look out onto the back yard.

We have chandelier that we bought at a estate auction while we were living in the Dallas area.  It’s circa 1930’s and it has been in every home we owned since then, so as soon as it is in, the house will feel more like it’s ours.

Even if I wanted I new chandelier I don’t think I could bare to change something that has been a constant in our lives.

At least not yet.

I actually like the chandelier that is in the photo. I may be able to paint it and re-purpose it.  That would be a huge win.
