It's beautiful! Talented hubby has finished the painting of the floor. Tomorrow will be Polyurethane Day. He has worked hard sanding, filling cracks with foam backer rods, caulking, painting, taping, painting, taping!
Before, the floor had developed wide cracks and the finish was in bad shape.
We always liked the tile look, but tile is hard on the feet. Now we have the best of both. Tile look, character in the wood grain and cracks, beautiful floor!
