Office and guest bedroom hardwood flooring progress

FloorsPlasticSanding220426In keeping with personal home project updating, our hardwood flooring has been moving along this week. The guys are making a mess sanding … but doing their best to contain dust. We are hoping for a stain-match to our existing oak floors, but in any case, the guest bedroom and office are taking shape. Unfortunately I know where this update is going: Next we’ll need to update the “Jack and Jill” bath between the office and bedroom. Ugh $$$!

All in all, I’m happy that Brenda talked me into replacing the carpeting with oak to match our first floor and I know that once things are finished up, it will be great to have a hardwood floored place to work.


Currently I’m thinking about ordering a new Vitrazza, or other brand, of“glass” chair mat rather than the plastic I’ve always had to protect the floors … and Brenda has her eyes set on finding a new rug to go under the antique table/desk (it has been my desk for nearly 40 years). It is also obvious that I need a new desk chair or at least some kind of recovering, but won’t rush that purchase (as my kids know … I’ll be looking for a deal and don’t give up easily on a 20+ year old chair. Ha!). Personally though, I really like my current heavily constructed framed desk chair … even if the vinyl and foam was cheap and failed a decade ago. Maybe reupholstering is an option (photos below).
