This will be the last in a three part installment on the refinishing of our living room. To finish off the floor, we ended up putting a polyurethane over the paint. Now it's just about perfect as far as finish and clean up capabilities as far as we are concerned.
So here are a few pictures of the room after we got our things back in....

This is not a tutorial, but we took a lot of pictures. First thing to do was figure out the exact size of the area we would paint. Getting it precisely the size we wanted was crucial, as you will see.

This morning we decided that it was time to pull that old worn out carpet out of the living room. Well, my wife sort of decided that she'd had it up to 'here' (that's about throat level) and that now was as good a time as any for me to follow through on the promise I'd made to help her take it out this winter. She was right, I'd been promising to do it "when work gets slow", and it looks as though right now is as slow as we'll get, even though it isn't actually that slow.
So I'm sure you're wondering.. Now what? So are we. We're going to either paint it, re-carpet it, or possibly (but quite unlikely) just get an area rug of the same size as they used fifty or more years ago and let that old wood as it is.
I guess whatever we decide will likely be the subject of the next blog! Any great ideas are welcome in the comments section!
