Kitchen Floor Transformation: Day 2

Our kitchen floor project is done! For anyone who has forgotten, here's a photo of the floor before the work began.

And here's what the floor looks like now! It actually looks brand new. We opted for a satin finish which will make scratches and scuffs less noticeable than they would be with a semi-gloss finish.

I'm very happy with the final product. And although everything is coated in a layer of dust, I'm also enjoying the fact that our kitchen is temporarily clutter-free!

On a side note, I'm also delighted that I don't have to spend another night with the cats locked in the bedroom with us. Last night was UGLY. Between 3:30 and 6:00 am, I got out of bed no less than ten times to redirect Tinsel from assorted naughty behaviors. I finally fell back to sleep only to be awakened by Lily standing on my head and purring cheerfully.

Unfortunately, tomorrow we have to move the table and fridge back into the kitchen. I had a great idea to replace the fridge with a cooler and the kitchen table with couple of comfy chairs (a la Starbucks) but no one around here seems to be embracing my vision.

Oh, well. Not having a kitchen was fun while it lasted.

Looks gorgeous! And LOL about trying to create the Starbucks atmosphere. Sounds like a winning idea to me. :D

Thank you, guys! I'm really happy with it. Not enjoying the dusting, though! haha But it's worth it to have the floor done!

The Flooring Guy did a great job. Did he not offer to clean up the dusty mess that he left you?
