Henry Came yesterday, sanded them down and put the first coat of polyeurithane on them.
They look beautiful!!! Unfortunately my internet connection is on the second floor so I'll have to wait until Saturday to be able to get in there and do a proper post with pictures.
Needless to day, Jacques and I already left our dusty footprints all over the beautiful floors during our inspection.
And there may be a new problem with the bathroom. (sigh) Stay tuned.
