Our plumber came today and plumed the sink for us and put on the new faucet. I also put a second coat of poly on the floor today. The last picture is of our center island. I have to refinish the counter top on it. We also got everything put back into our cabinets today. Hopefully in a few days we can put the fridge back in and the mini freezer

Today i put a third coat of poly on the floor. Hopefully in a day or two i will be able to put the fridge, mini freezer and island back in the kitchen.


Does anyone know how long i should stay off the floor after the last coat of poly. It seems to dry fast. But i don't want to mess it up moving a fridge across it.

Great job brckwlt. 8-) Looks very good.
When I move heavy things over my pine / poly floors I use blankets under plywood sheets. 1/2" plywood will do the job. I would still wait two days to move the fridge.

Put some fans so they blow across the new poly and keep the room warm...
48 hrs should cure it well enough to move stuff if you protect the floor...
Just remember scratches and dents add 'character' to the floor...
The first blemish sucks...

Beautiful! Nice job.

Staying off the floor... Hmmmm..... if you & your wife are lousy cooks and not using the kitchen somehow gets you good food, I'd stay off it a couple of months, but if your home cooking is better than any restaurant I'd be on it as soon as I didn't leave foot prints. :)

I went to check out the floors this morning and it is dry to the touch, so i decided to walk on it and it seems fine to walk on. My wife and i aren't world famous chefs, but i do miss my cooking compared to the frozen food and pizza we have been eating the last week.

The kitchen is about 99% done. I have to put on the rest of the molding around the top of the wall cabinets and touch up some paint in a few places.

Overall my wife and i couldn't be happier with how the kitchen turned out.

We spent about $1,200.00 dollars for the whole renovation.

300 on kitchen cabs and counter
180 on the faucet, and sink accessories
140 on the floors
150 for the plumber
100 on the island
80 for a new microwave
100 on wainscoting and stain and brushes
150 for the 8 foot tall hickory pantry just outside of the kitchen
