As to the headline, we’re flooring it because now the Renovation Finish Line is in sight, just another lap around the track. Step on the gas and start waving that checkered flag!
I don’t want to jinx anything but we’re probably only 2 weeks from completion, at least as far as the contractors are concerned. (Window treatments and bar stools are another matter.) The new hardwood floor was sanded, stained and finished this week, and the painter will do his thing next week. Then a few more punch list items and we’ll be back to cooking in no time. If we can stand to dirty up our pretty new kitchen, that is.

How long will they remain unscuffed? As the Tootsie Roll Owl says, "Let's find out. One ... two-hoo ... three. crunch. Three!" In our case that might mean 3 days, 3 weeks ... I'm certain we can't go 3 years without scuffed floors. But I have a hunch these beauties will still be stunners even with a lived-in look.
