Refinishing The Hardwood Floors

IMG_3297.PNG

Hey everyone! If you've been following along on Instagram then you are WELL aware that we have been under renovation for about 2 weeks now having all of the hardwood in our home refinished and we've even had them replace some of the carpet upstairs with hardwood in our master bedroom and one of the guest rooms.

I'm not going to lie, living in this type of renovation sucks because we've had to move everything out of the house - furniture, shoes, beds, etc. We don't have a single chair in our house right now and have been living out of hotels and Airbnbs, but it will be worth it when it's all said and done! For now, we only had them do 2 rooms upstairs so that we could at least stay partially in the house when we were able too, but we're going to have them come back in October (hopefully) to do the remaining 2 rooms upstairs (guest room + my office). I'm sure I've shared with you the awful carpet selection that the previous owners chose, literally every single room has different COLORED carpet except for the master - blue, green & red - it's hideous and not to mention quite disgusting since they weren't the cleanest.

Since this is the biggest project we’ve tackled since the kitchen renovation (learn how to chalk paint your cabinets here), I thought it would share the progress we’ve made and eventually I will actually share my pros, cons and tips/advice if your considering having your floors refinished or doing them yourself! For now, enjoy the before, during and current photos of our home under renovation.

And since the staining starts tomorrow, Winston and I have checked ourselves into the most adorable Airbnb in Montgomery, NY for the rest of the week! Stay tuned for the end result y’all!
