We are starting to get there...

With the sanding phase on the floors finished, and the 2 coats of stain on, today we were able to start into verathane! Sure was not much of a day to do anything outside, as it was cold, and rained most of the day. Sure can tell fall is here.


Kristina took this picture above, standing in the dining room, looking towards the living room. The floor has the stain only on it in this picture, ready for verathane. Gives you a good idea of the colour of the stain.

Both the stain we used, and the verathane are with a satin finish, and both are latex based, so they are easy to use. Today I applied the first coat of verathane at 9:00, finishing 2 1/2 hours later. At 2:30 this afternoon, I started the second coat. It is looking good. Tomorrow, 2 more coats will be applied to make a total of 4 coats, recommended for high traffic areas.

Hey, in less than 2 weeks, we will be heading to Florida!

Till tomorrow...



  1. nice job! Kristina is lucky to have you for her 'handy man'!

  2. Floors are looking awesome, only 3 days left for us, where did the summer go?

  3. With several coats of stain, those floors will look great. Nice work of that, John.

    Those cold temperatures you referred to to must get your travel juices going.

  4. Nice job on those floors, they look great.

    I think Kristina should make you a big pot of Mac 'n Cheese for all your hard work!!
