New floor

We decided to stain our floorboards and seal them with hard wax oil. The whole process took much longer than anticipated. Although our floorboards are new, we thought we should sand them off slightly anyway, especially after all the trodden in dirt from the work we've been doing. We hired a floor sander from HSS as well as an edge sander (which was terrible, and broke twice - in the end we had to use a palm sander that we already had, which wasn't the best tool for the job). Anyway, we got there eventually. The wax oil is currently drying and we are confined to the bedroom/bathroom until it's dry!

Here are some before/after pics.
