I think the MOST frequently asked question I get since laying our pine floors [like a month ago?] has been… WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO YOUR FLOORS? You can see the flooring we put in [HERE] Guys it keeps me up at night. Do we paint? Do we stain? Do we do a combo of both? What color paint? What color stain? Gahhh. I blogged here some paint color options [HERE]. & today I wanted to quick pop in with the only stain color that I have liked since starting the stain sampling process…
Ok, don’t mind my lack of pedicure, but here is the stain color on the floor in our guest bedroom where we are testing all the paint and stain samples because we are ultimately going to be painting the floors in this room. But we are testing all of the paint & stain colors for the rest of the house that these pine floors are in [front living room, dining room, kitchen, sunroom, & guest bedroom]. The stain color is Minwax Early American. I’m not going to lie, I think this is the one. I apologize for the terrible lighting in these photos & will try to document it better later, but this color, the warmth, the rustic vibe, I love it all & I think it will go so well in the large part of our lower level.
Like I said, this was a terrible time of day to take photos, but you get the idea. I will be sharing more on My instagram & Facebook this weekend, but I think I will be painting these floors this weekend in the guest bedroom as well! So stay tuned for what color we ended up choosing. What do you guys think of this stain color? Would you like to see more stain samples? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. xx
