Kitchen Floor Transformation: Day 1

Day 1 of the floor refinishing project seemed to go well, at least for the guys working in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, confining the kitties to the upstairs bedrooms is proving to be a challenge, to say the least. They are not happy, and they're not afraid to let their emotions show.
RATTLE RATTLE RATTLE goes Lily's sweet little foot under the door. SCRAPE SCRAPE SCRAPE go her precious little claws. You get the idea.

But on to the topic at hand: The floor. The two Nice Floor Guys sanded and sanded then sanded some more...so much that there were garbage bags of sawdust outside in our garage. They sanded away all of our scrapes and scratches and erased all physical evidence of that nasty water leak below the sink from a few years back.

Then they mixed up something which appeared to be chocolate frosting. It looked good enough to eat. But I refrained. Even though it was Day 1 Without a Kitchen.

Maybe they did eat that chocolate frosting after all, because the next time I looked, the Nice Floor Guys were applying oil to the floor. It will dry overnight and tomorrow they'll start applying the finishing coats.

Sure, it's a little inconvenient not being able to walk through the kitchen. But not being able to use the stove? I could get used to that pretty easily.
