This one is strictly to document a significant event this year. After a very long time of saving- and then deciding what exactly to do- we have added hard wood floors to our living room. This completes our kitchen overhaul as well.
These changes also meant sanding and restaining the wood in our kitchen. We went from yellowish oak with a glossy topcoat to a more contemporary grey/brown matte finish. We're no Chip and Joanna Gaines, but the end result is pretty nice.
Our house needed the update! But it's so addictive. And expensive. So we are done... for now.
