On Thursday I met with the flooring guy (who fled communist Romania by himself when he was 17, walked through the mountains for 4 days to Yugoslavia then spent a month in a prison camp – somewhere along his journey he had to swim 90 minutes across a daunting body of water too – made it to the US, learned to speak English, worked hard and now runs a successful flooring business – I LOVE THIS GUY!). I know this doesn’t have anything to do with our update but I think it’s a life story worth repeating.
You want to hear about the house, right? There’s a lot to tell so let’s get started!
The first thing the guys did is sand a patch of floor where the kitchen cabinets will go.
Then they showed me 4 different stains to choose from:
Let’s take a closer look…
Yesterday and today the flooring guys will sand. The day after that they will stain and seal. NO ONE can walk on the floors for the next four days.
So what color did I pick?! You’ll find out in a few days. 😉

Remember yesterday when I updated you about the tile in the powder room? Here’s the reason we had to take the tile up the wall to the height it’s at now:
Could it be that this post has come to an end? It is true dear reader.
Thanks for reading and have a Joyful Day!
Edit: I picked the stain of my dreams here!
