I thought by now I would be able to share pictures of our refinished floors, and freshly painted rooms that I've started to furnish. Well, as we all know, life doesn't usually go how you plan. Long story short, the guy we hired didn't strip the painted wood floors correctly, the stain didn't absorb, and then he put the poly on while the stain was still wet.
So now we are starting over with someone else and the floors are getting redone in two weeks. Licenses have been double checked, better business bureau called, and multiple recommendations have been noted, so hoping this time everything works out.
Rather than bore you with pictures of mottled floors, I'll share a picture of a bedroom featured in Elle Decoration magazine. Pretty much defines my design aesthetic: Ornate metallic bed matched with minimalist bedding, palest pink pillow meets sooty black, all resting on rustic chevron wood floors.
