Hardwood Floors - Take 2

We're getting closer!!  Since Brian has had some time off from the paint company he works for right now, he's really been attacking these floors. 
 I am so thankful to have such a handy hubby who works so hard!

Finishing up the sanding with the "edger."
The guest bedroom - BEFORE
Guest bedroom - AFTER
As you can see, we went with quite a dark wood stain.  We were hoping to hide the gross stains as much as possible.  The wood stain turned the fir into walnut!
Master bedroom - BEFORE
The bedroom floors turned out really sharp!

Living room and dining room - BEFORE
This is why you DO NOT let your pets use your carpet as a urinal!!  These stains just won't come out, short of replacing the boards.

Living room and dining room after - LOOKING GOO!

This weekend we'll apply the two sealer coats of "Glitsa", one coat top-coat, the floors will have to cure for about 48 hours and then WE CAN MOVE IN!!  
It's hard to believe we're finally this close to actually living in our house!
