The Lake House Renovation: Kids’ Bedroom, Day 13

I’m truly going to miss these darker floors, which [we think] had been covered with wall-to-wall carpeting for years. We decided to go with a lighter wood tone to balance out all the dark brick in the living room and the soon-to-be darker kitchen cabinetry. Here’s midway through sanding.

This room was my mortal enemy until today. The sanded floors look pretty! So I’ve promoted it to an arch rival.

Sanded the new hardwood floor today. It looks lovely. I know it will be slightly darker when it’s sealed, but it looks perfect right now.

The original flooring is cabin-grade red oak, which may not be the prettiest hardwood, but I feel a sense of loyalty to it. So, the kitchen and dining room will be set to match as best we can.

Finished the door and trim! What a productive Labor Day. Walls are Sherwin-Williams’ Origami White and trim is Pure White.
