Our nearly complete floor, with some extraneous STUFF which resolutely refuses to disappear

After a surprising amount of time during which our stacked up flooring was used as improvised kichen furniture, it’s finally been laid as actual floor and it’s gorgeous.

The delay was caused by residual STUFF that resolutely refused to leave until I insisted on moving some to storage and some to a charity shop (who, it must be said, were somewhat underwhelmed).

We’d agonised for months about what to do with the floor, but kept coming back to a harlequin design on top of he oak and this is where Wifey has come into her own. She spent days researching the best materials and techniques and has so far spent nearly two months taping, staining, restaining and lacquering.

I think I’ve mentioned before that the Wifey side of the family is not cursed by any sense of urgency, but in this case her excess diligence is really paying off. The floor looks fantastic!
