In the beginning I told you I'd share the good,
and ALL the other stuff that goes along with this remodel.
Well, it's time for some of the other stuff.
Remember when I was doing cartwheels because the floor was finished, and we were excited to move the furniture back in the great room so we could start demo in the kitchen?
Well, it's been a month since they began laying the wood floors and they aren't finished yet!
It was looking so pretty...
We couldn't wait to get back from our trip to Florida so we could place the furniture in this room,
but out of no where several areas with dark stains had appeared while we were gone....
These floors were sealed but not stained, because Brazilian Cherry darkens over time.
So when the floor guy back out to look at the spots,
he said that stain had somehow gotten on some of the flooring.
They sanded the spotty areas,
and brushed sealer on the sanded spots,
but when it dried he wasn't happy with it. (Neither were we)
So he wanted to lightly sand and reseal the floor again...
Did I tell you it's been a month since they started the floors in this room?
It's been frustrating for us all,
but we are so thankful that our floor guy wants it to look great
and since he did the rest of our hardwoods...we have complete faith in him!
when the sealer dried,
this is how it looked...
Everywhere you looked there was dust, debris, and bubbles of dried sealer all over the floor...
So they came back again today to sand,
and scrape the sealer spots and debris off the floor...
But just as they were leaving I mentioned that it looked like some areas didn't get covered with sealer...
But I was assured it was OK,
and he'd be back later in the day to take a peek.
Later in the day when he came back,
this is what he saw...
I may not be a floor installer,
but I have eyes,
and the sealer wasn't covering in some areas,
and if he had come right back when I called him they could have taken care of things while it was still wet.
BUT, they didn't and it dried that way.
I'm just a girl...what do I know!
They are coming back tomorrow to cover these spots with a little sealer,
and I am hoping it goes better than the last time they tried to cover a couple of spots with sealer,
Yes, I'm still smiling...it's taking a little more effort...but still smiling!
