It's Like Lotion...For Your Floor

In an effort to declutter, organize, rearrange rooms and generally get our house ready for foster care, we have completely torn it apart, sideways and upside down.  Some folks have heard me say in person that we are living in chaos and they have said "Eh Anna, it can't be that bad."   Well, it is.   We are slowing making headway and it is exciting.  But...

As of a few days ago, our den looked like this:

 Our baby room looked like this:

Our old bedroom at the back of the house looked like this:

And our new bedroom at the front of the house looked like this:

Aaaaah, what a breath of fresh floor.  We decided to take advantage of the fact that this room was totally cleared out and do a spa treatment for our lovely ole hardwoods.  In one of our many, many trips to Lowes over the past couple weeks, Trent picked out this stuff:  

I don't have many comments about it other than it was easy for me to slap down with a painters pad one evening while Trent was at church camp roofing a building by himself.  This is not any kind of refinisher or wax, it's basically like lotion...for your floor.  Brings some life and shine back into hardwoods to schmexy them up a bit. And we were quite pleased.  Granted, this picture was taken a bit earlier in the day than the before picture with a little more natural light but can see the entire reflection of the box the floor...

So, three cheers for floor lotion.   Now back to our chaos...
