BTW, I repainted this room in a color called Wool Skein by Sherwin Williams. Do you like it? I haven't done the foyer yet...we usually don't have all that furniture in the foyer either.
The kids skated on the concrete floors all weekend and had a blast! They wanted to keep these floors, but mommy had other plans!
Today started the tearing out of the old and damaged wood floors (we had a leak). This was a much louder, messier and dustier process than I first imagined. We had to leave the house or have ringing in the ears for days...
I can't believe how fast they worked. They got all the old out and laid the new floor in one day. It would have taken us at least a week I am sure!
Here is the new floor tonight and I just love it! I will take more pics in the daylight, but the floor is the perfect mix of rustic elegance. It is an engineered wood made by Shaw called Nottaway Hickory and the color is Weathered Saddle. It is handscraped which gives it a wavy look and the price was very reasonable. They have to come back tomorrow and do the shoe molding, so for now we are sleeping with the oven and the couch in our bedroom. More pics to come!
