Well, I have pictures of it all, but they’re on my phone and I can’t figure out how to get them off of it and on to the computer. Maybe if I could get a more literate person (say, the 3 year old down the street) to help, I’ll have them to show to you. … Continue reading Blue and pink
So the guy went on and installed the floors, and Dad has assured me that it is fine to paint, as the floor guy will be sanding them several times and applying multiple layers of assorted finishes.
