I had been a bit concerned about the floors because the photos our contractor had sent us of the applied darker stain, once drier than the pic Jon sent, looked really blotchy and streaky - just showing too much of the wood grain - making the floors look high contrast and super textured.
well, in person, i am happy to report, the floors look amazing. I am super happy with how the stain came out. I had the same blotchy look in the pics i took - but believe me the floors look great.
I can really see the room starting to take shape.
Even though the floors had had several days to dry, i stayed off them to be safe. I did peak in from the front door as well and found this...
just a hilarious mishap - that i hope will be an easy fix for the pros.
