Fall Home Tour – Entry

Fall is my favorite season so I decided to decorate our home for fall first (very minimally compared to recent years), rather than our every day living reveal. 

(Also, since we have only had our stuff back for a month and a half, I really don’t have the time to decorate for everyday and then tear it all apart to redecorate for the holiday seasons.)

So, Fall Home Tour first, Christmas Home Tour next, THEN I will do a home reveal once normal decor is all situated. 

First up, front entry. One room at a time. Why? The others aren’t done. 🤷🏼‍♀️

__FLOORED__

The last week has been…

LOUD…


…but productive.

This sander ran in our home for three days straight in order to sand the wood down three layers before staining. But alas, the noise was worth it in the end.

We only replaced one board that suffered from the fire damage (only because they ripped it off the floor to find replacement boards). Instead of replacing the burned boards, I decided to keep them after seeing them sanded; they added character and they are part of the story of our home.

New stain color: Dark Walnut (Minwax)

Poly: Bona Floor Finisher (3 coats applied; buffed after coats 1 and 2)

Flooring: Heart pine (barn wood)

Here is the before:


Here are the durings:


Here are the afters:

All of our belongings are being return tomorrow and Friday (or Fri-yay)! 😄
