Mitch and I finished the red oak floor yesterday. He had installed it and sanded it, and we both applied the water based polyurethane (hardly any fumes). If you can DIY, this was a good deal, $2/sq ft, real oak. The fake stuff in the store cost more. 'Course you gotta figure in the sander rental.
Now it's on to the walls! I am the principal wall painter in this house.
