Welcome back to our home!
I’m so excited to be sharing another Home Series, featuring an update on our floor installation and paint, with you today. Things have progressed since our last update, so I wanted to update you and chat about what has been happening around the house and what will be coming up next!
It’s been about a month since our last update and primarily the only thing hat that changed has been our floors. I like to try to keep things positive, but the amount of stress and frustration have dealt with from Dominion Power has me at my breaking point. So for now, let’s just say that nothing has been able to be done because they have taken FOREVER to get us power. It’s honestly ridiculous, but I am going to move on, because we are FINALLY getting power today. I will save the frustration discussion for a later date, because its not worth the time or effort!
On a happier note, the floors look absolutely stunning! While they have not been sanded, or stained, they are completely fastened to the floor in every room except our entry. The entry area will be herringbone, so they are going to install that at the very end, once everything else is complete and we are ready to sand and stain! I’m so grateful for the way everything is turning out and I’m so happy that we chose to do all hardwood floors, they look absolutely stunning. We have pretty much chosen our stain color, however I want to wait until its completed to share that with you!
In the last home series post, I shared a couple of pain color swatches. You can see we decided to go with the light grey, blue, color. Now, what you see in the pictures is only the primer coat, so there will be a few more coats before you can see the true color.

We are off to our house this morning so I will definitely be sharing some pictures and videos on snapchat this morning!
