wood floor refinishing


This was a wood floor refinishing project that involved a very custom color creation.

The floor was oak and had walnut pegs that the owner wanted to cover with stain and finish.

To create the custom color we stained the floor Ebony, but to get it even darker and yet warmer in appearance we applied a tinted sealer coat that was a mix of burnt umber/lamp black paint colorant.

Applying paint colorant treated sealer is extremely difficult, but the look is optically amazing because the color stays very opaque until direct light hits it and then you can see the grain of the flooring.

This is a before and after series, where the original floor is a merlot colored stain that was very dated. We refinished the floors to prepare it to be listed on the real estate market.
