WOODEN FLOOR RESTORATION

Lots of you are loving following along with our breakfast room DIY endeavours. The floor has been finished for about a month now and I am totally in love with it. It took a lot of sweat and a few tears to complete this wooden floor restoration but it has made such a big difference to the space. Read on to find out how we renovated it, and what we used...

Lots of you are loving following along with our breakfast room DIY endeavours. If you are on Instagram, and more precisely Instagram Stories, then you will have seen the wooden floor restoration taking place as it happened. The floor has been finished for about a month now and we are totally in love with it.

It took a lot of sweat and a few tears, but it has made such a big difference to the space. The room is so much lighter and because the colour is the same as the kitchen floor it links the two rooms beautifully.

A whole bunch of you got in touch to ask if I would share the process and what products we used. Also, filling the gaps between our boards became a hot topic and many of you messaged me with suggestions of things you have tried in the past, in order to make your homes less draughty. I know a few of you wanted to see that list too, so I will share that at the bottom of this post. This is not a sponsored post, just me telling you what I have tried and how I got on.

This was such good timing for me as I had just started to de-clutter and sort through our belongings after our move.  On top of this, after my summer of slow living, something I have been thinking about more is how ‘slow living’ will effect our house and the things we have in it.
