The Floors

We still have a little bit of work left to finish off our floors. First we were short three feet to complete the room. Also I plan on giving it another coat of varnish and maybe some more stain to darken it up a tad bit more. Here are the pictures of before we started on the floor and afterwards. I also included our curtains since I had been waiting to find the perfect curtains..hehe





This is the floors after we laid tar paper and had the unplaned wood stacked in piles representing thier widths.





Here are the floors after we had laid and sanded them and I had began staining them, which was minwax's Red Mahogany.





This is to show how all the seams come together. They have the old colonial peg look. We sunk the screws and the tapped plugs in them.





Here are the floors as we have them right now. They need more varnish as I have mentioned. They are not all flush and we like it like that because it adds to the very old feeling.





Here are the curtains we found at walmart. I love them and they fit my kitchen style perfectly!

So there you have it. Sorry it took me so long to get the pictures up!
