Scraped Hardwood Floors 2

This is a picture of the floors before the guys attacked them again this morning. 

When you see how much work goes into hand-scraped hardwood floors, you realize the company  doing the floors deserves every penny they charge.

Last post I ended with the sanded bare floors:

Next came hand scraping one way, and then more scraping the other way. The guys really did do it by hand, on their knees, with tools.

We ended up with four large green trash bags of wood curl shavings for the yard, but that's a future post.

Here's a picture of the floors this morning, before they started on them again today. I actually thought they were finished when they left Saturday night, that's how innocent I was!

To get to this point by Saturday evening, after the hand scraping there was a sanding, then a coat of stain. Next two coats of sealer or something.

So you can see why I kinda thought they were through except for the trim...wrong!

Here's one of the "Mister Evils" back Monday morning to torture what looks to me like lovely floors.

I'm trusting the process because I'm sure they wouldn't be doing all this work if it wasn't necessary.

But it's so hard to see them start sanding again on what looks like perfectly lovely floors!

I hate to ask you to come back again, but I'll have to wait a few days to post the finished version of the floors.

Thanks for stopping by to share the story of our life so far.


  1. Oh I'll be back - this is intriguing - they look finished to me too!
    And gorgeous!

  2. I would have also thought they were through--They are really turning out lovely, you must be really excited!!

  3. Can't wait to see the end result! ~ Maureen
