Kitchen: Day 5

When I greeted the floor guys in the morning they informed me they would stain the floor by the end of the day, would put the finish on Wednesday. It was pretty satisfying to know that my floors would have Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to set before the delivery of the appliances and cabinets came on Saturday.

I came home to a pungent smell and lovely stained floors, though still rough without the polyurethane on them.

It was hard to get a photo that showed the floor without being too dark due to the flash. Here is the one that showed the floor the best:

That floor looks beautiful! I'm going to be installing a wood floor in my kitchen during the next couple of weeks I hope. How many coats of polyurethane are you planning to use?

Hi Cyndy,

The floor guys put three coats on the wood.

Good luck with your kitchen floors!
