Here are the pictures taken by Jan Carlisle after our floors and paint were done, in December. I wanted to show off my early baby bump in some of them, too!
I’m glad we have pictures of the floors before they got scratched up by dog nails! They were absolutely beautifully done by Birdseye Hardwoods (recommended by our agent, Laurie Sonnenfeld). There were areas where the wood was damaged or not there at all and they expertly moved boards around and added some to even everything out. I think it’s all a water-based sealant.
The painting was done by John Lobo Painting; I believe A.’s mom found him on Angie’s List. It’s Benjamin Moore paint, and a color consultant, Nancy Alwin, helped us pick the colors.
What a difference! And all of our contractors were really nice to work with.
The trim is Snowfall White and the ceilings are Acadia White.
