Day 162 - Coat 3 of Poly

Boy, am I tired tonight! We got up early for Colton's soap box race for Boy Scouts. Are you asking if he won? Well, of course he did, silly. With the racing genes he inherited from his mama and maybe a few from his daddy, he's a born rubber-burner.

I scuffed the floors and put the third coat of poly on the floors today. I did see alot of tiny bubbles in the floor today that bothered me, but it is what it is. They are still gorgeous and I'm probably the only one that will really notice them. I'm posting some before pictures as well as the after pictures so you can get the full effect of the change. These pictures were taken after the second coat of poly had dried. I am so pleased with the transformation from dark pine cave to shiny shiny goodness and light. Again...ignore the baseboards as that will be a project one night next week! And maybe one day in my fantasy world, the light fixture will get re-hung. Note - the furniture in the before pictures is not mine as I took those photos when I was looking at the house. The first picture reminds me of a horror dark and I can picture someone tied to that chair getting tortured - that's how scary the before is.

We did this to a kitchen floor that was the color of yours BUT we sanded them down to the yellow wood color before we coated them. They came out honey colored and I'll never forget that being my favorite flooring in a kitchen. It was beautiful. You will love the way it usually looks clean and it will be very durable.
