Natural beauty

Our story so far: After sanding floors for months at the old Methodist church, we spent a little time filling the seams.

Our next hurdle was stain. Fortunately, choosing a stain color proved to be much easier than choosing paint colors for the trim and walls. We decided to go without stain on the maple in the master suite and on the pine on the second floor. A couple of coats of clear polyurethane was all we needed to show off the hardwood.
