The past few days I’ve been tackling the living room trim, and there is finally some visual progress! Lots of nail hole filling, sanding, etc not to mention the cutting and installing of all the trim. The day finally arrive to stain/ poly our beautiful white oak. We’re using a combined stain/ poly called Golden Pecan.
So here’s that fireplace. The rich stain really makes the tiles POP. The funny thing is we are reusing a piece of oak trim with the original stain (found inside the fireplace mantel) and after I started poly-ing noticed this color matches exactly. High five, us.
I suppose we’re ~ half way done with this step, then I’ll be back around with a clear coat of semi gloss poly to wrap it up. Progress!
