I would have taken a picture just like the first one so it would be more 'comparable' but we don't have the trim put back up yet and I was anxious to take pictures of the finished product!!! My biggest reason for reflooring is before it was just WAY too light for my taste. It showed every single speck of dirt..which I hated. Even when I'd clean and clean the floors..it still looked dirty. Plus I just like a more earthy tone for flooring and this totally matched our taste. I love it!!!
Now I've got the itch to repaint our laundry room!!
