It's hard to see the difference in the pictures, but the floors on the main floor are definitely lighter and cleaner looking! The floor refinisher also repaired some deep marring in the dining room by replacing some strips of the oak flooring.The transitions between the new and old flooring aren't too bad, but they are clearly different age materials.
We were hoping to start moving in this weekend, but we can't actually lay rugs down for a week! Ugh, another week. We are so ready to move up into the light. =)
