Here is a sneak peek of lovely floor
we now have in our lounge, hall and dining room.
All recreated by the wonderful Mr Fete.
It's the second time he has sanded floors,
lets hope never again!
To those worried about dust,
we sealed the doors with polythene,
and to be honest the floor sander
kept most of the sawdust contained.
He only hit on one issue
as seen above!
Originally there was a fireplace in the dining room
not taken out by us.
So we had to replace some boards,
which we bought from a reclamation yard.
But as you see they are no way as old as ours,
and unfortunately, once stained look a bit odd.
Hopefully for now we will just cover the area
with our table and chairs.
We used colron 'american walnut' wood stain,
and 3 coats of ronseal satinwood floor varnish.
Yep that was 3 coats of varnish!
I cant really show you much more
as I'm painting the ceilings, wood work and walls!
Paint now that's another story!!
We are heading towards the fluffy bunny.
ps. the French gray from F&B
in real life its not as pretty as pictured online,
it's a really strange colour, like putty really.
I'm just glad because I didn't want to spend £29 on a tin of paint!!
