Kitchen Floor – We Re-Finished it

With the layers of flooring removed and the raw wood exposed it didn’t take us long to motivate to finish this project.

We moved the contents of our kitchen into our dining room.  We look like hoarders.

The kitchen is tightly sealed off from the rest of the house.

I hand sanded between each coat of floor lacquer.

Isn’t it pretty?

Kitchen Floor – What Lies Beneath

As much as I appreciate the retro aspects of avocado green, too much of a good thing can be overwhelming. Without question this was the case in our kitchen. It was time for the 70’s floor to go. Our home was built in 1896 and we had suspicion that below the retro green flooring lay a fir floor just ready to be reclaimed.



Goodbye green floor, I will not miss you.

Fir floor in the dining room appears to continue into the kitchen, being covered up a lot of retro goodness.

Our suspicions are confirmed.  Beauty lies beneath.

Almost done with the tear out. Whooohhooo
