Staining with the grain.

This will be a quick update.

Last night was another long night with a 1am bedtime. We stained the dining room as planned, and ended up staining the living room as well. We originally made a decision to go with the bare oak floor, but when seeing it next to the stained maple we changed our minds.

Q also continued to tackle the dishwasher. After soaking the seal in hot soapy water, re-installing and trimming the excess the door latch issue was fixed, but it leaked on the left hand side just a little bit. So either we trimmed the seal too much, or… some thing else.

While Q was working on the dishwasher, I sanded and sealed the counter top. Oh and cooked dinner (so happy to have a functional kitchen – with a gas stove!).

Tonight will be the first coat of finish. Yippee!
