Change Of Plans

I'm still experimenting with attic floor finishes. I decided that a lighter floor will be more appropriate for a beach house garage. Here's what I'm working on this morning.

I found two more cans of stain in my utility room last night when I was looking for something else. I tried one of those too.

I still need to do some sanding. LOVE my little Black and Decker helper! :D

Hope you have a great day!

it's looking very nice I really need to invest in some power tools.

I keep looking at the B and D mouse. I think that you may have just convinced me to buy one. How often do you have to change the pads?

I like the new floor. I am wondering how it would look with a very very light wash of white?
What color is that stain? Very nice.

Kathi- I really like the new color. It looks really pretty with the wallpaper.

Thanks! I've had my little mouse sander for about 5+ years. I use it all the time. It comes with several different grades of sandpaper that velco on to the pad. Replacement sandpaper is available at Home Depot and Lowes.
This finish is a light coat of oak stain that I dry brushed with some cream/gray and white. I think maybe a little more white wash will do it.
Thanks for the idea Casey! :D

I agree, I like the lighter color better. It looks very nice Kathi.

BTW I got your PIF gifts, I love them. Many thank.

Wow! A lotta lotta LOTTA work, but it's looking great so far! I think you are right about the lighter color wood for a beach house. Gotta love a lady who knows her power tools. :)
