Pals for life, lol!

Along with the flooring project we also ordered a 20 yard dumpster and spent a Saturday morning cleaning the basement of 15 years of "I might need it some day" junk!
Atlanta Furniture Recovery was kind enough to except our donation of 3 mattress sets and other furniture for the less fortunate plus we took several car loads of clothing to the Goodwill and several boxes of donated books to our local library.
Finally after 15 years of planning we leap into our first really large home improvement project and installed solid red oak flooring in the hallway and stairwell.
The project went smoothly until we realized that we could not use the flooring for the tread part of the stairs! We were forced to buy $300.00 of solid unfinished red oak stair treads and finish them ourselves! We managed to match the stain to the flooring and after about a week of staining and urethaning we had 12 beautiful stair treads.
We love the results.
