This week we had our hardwood floors refinished, and they turned out beautifully! When we first bought our house, almost two years ago (man, time flies!), there was carpet throughout the living room and bedrooms. It didn’t take long before we decided to lift up the carpet to see what was hidden underneath, and we were pleasantly surprised to find hardwoods! They were not in great shape, but they were good enough that we could live with them until we figured out a plan for having them refinished. So we took up all the carpet and painstakingly removed all the staples and nails. There were a few places where the floors were chipped a bit so we put down masking tape (X marks the spot!) so that nobody would snag their socks. It was pretty ghetto fabulous. And finally, a year or so later, we hired a very nice family owned and operated company to come in and make them look as good as new! They were done in one day, and then we let them dry for two. The smell is still lingering a bit, but it’s not anything a smelly-good candle from Target can’t take care of! : )
Here are some pictures!
A big thank you to Bill & Betty for letting us live in their home while our floors were being done! It worked out perfectly and we really appreciated it!
I highly recommend these guys if you have any refinishing needs.
