Floors

Today Cole and I got to pick the color of our floors since we're refinishing them. We both thought this task would be super-easy, and maybe even fun. Boy were we wrong. Ok, it was a little fun, but it was much harder than we thought it was going to be. We thought one color would just jump out at us, and none really did. It was also stressful to choose because these floors are throughout the ENTIRE house! Yikes!

In the end, though, we found a color that we're both really pleased with. I think it'll look great once it's all done. Here's our color - Jacobean:


Here are the samples that the floor guy did for us. He said the most he's done for someone is 15. I can't imagine having 15 different stains on my floors to choose from. Talk about overwhelming.

This is our living room without a finish on the floors. Cole is looking out of our new windows.
And this is the back room off of the kitchen. There used to be nasty - really, really nasty - carpet back here. We decided to pull it up (I don't think there was any hope of cleaning it) and put down hardwoods. I think they're going to look great.
That's the end. We're hoping to be able to move into the house the week of June 22! I'm so excited!!! Now I've just gotta start packing up the townhouse.

I'm sure you already knew this, but all those samples on the floor look the same to me. Well, some of them look a little lighter, but for the most part, the same.

Haha! Yeah, they do look a lot alike in the picture. Trust me, though, even YOU would have been able to see the difference in person.
