Day two brought staining the freshly sanded floors.  Definitely looked better after the second coat.  Excited to see it tomorrow with the topcoat.


Greg sanded the floors.  The wood was lighter than I expected.  Next day will bring stain.

What's that smell?

I arrived home from work tonight to a stench in the air.  Greg had the day off so I was trying to guess what he'd been up to.  My first guess was he cooked something odd for lunch.  He did cook fish for lunch, but that wasn't the smell.  He led me upstairs and the scent became stronger.  He took the initiative to disconnect the radiators in the bedrooms, sand the area underneath and around the radiators and appy two coats of stain.  What a guy!  Once again, I'm a lucky gal.  A great start to the week ahead.

Prepping to Refinish the Upstairs Wood Floors

The plan is to refinish our upstairs wood floors this week.  Greg has some days off and plans to spend them working on the floors.  This weekend we prepped.  Greg fixed some areas of broken wood.  Then we moved all of the furniture into our master bedroom.  The floors in our bedroom can't be refinished so they'll have to be replaced later.  We'll be sleeping in the basement until the floors are complete.
