A Really Awfully Smooth Sole Habitat

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Beneath Your Feet.”

 Bedroom floor

The photo prompt near had me floored,

But then imagination soared,

For which I need to offer thanks

To newly sealed and sanded planks

In bedroom, where they’ve been restored.

    That floor makes me want to dance!

      All it takes is to hire a heavy-duty sander, clean up, and then diligently apply the sealer coats. Essential to leave the floor completely to its own devices while that dries properly.

    Looks stunning, Mister N.
    I see what you mean about nicking your Sole line. No wonder you tackled me on it.
    But I promise I didn’t come fishing for inspiration over at your spot.

    May I also offer congrats on your achievement, as much as the visual aesthetics as on the practicals. Can’t say now that you’re not level-headed!

    A really clever offer—ring
    I’d say it went with a good ‘ping’
    A floor so clear and free from dust
    Solitude really is a must

  12. Great progress on the restoration. Your louvred windows reminded me of our home beside the Indian Ocean – hard to believe it was more than twenty years ago.


  13. There’s something wonderful about a freshly done floor. Like all steps now will be new and in the right direction.
