Before loves after...

renovation
Are you all ready for a before/after action?! I know I am. The floors are finally dry and they look amazing! Remember the before photo (above) from last week? That's PRH scraping off layers and layers of disgusting. Here's what they looked like yesterday...

SO shiny!!! I seriously wanted to lay down on our floors and give them a giant kiss...OK, that's exactly what I did. Mwah mwah, shiny floors. I'm so happy that everything is coming together. We were planning to stay last night, but I went a little crazy refinishing the kitchen cabinets (um...hi, missing doors?), so today is our official move in day. PRH and I are headed over there right now to finish cleaning and start moving furniture in. Am I excited? Hecks yeah! Stay tuned for more before/afters next week. Happy weekend!

WOW Beautiful! And so kissable! I'm excited for you! I love moving (it's strange I know) but it must be especially satisfying when it's a place that looks gorgeous because of the work you've put into it! You've already made it yours before putting stuff in it!

I have refinished hardwood floors about 5 times now: twice at my home in Austin (pre major remodel and post major remodel), at my sister's home, and at the home we currently own in East Texas. It always amazes me how beautifully old wood refinishes. Y'all did an amazing job! You should be very proud.
