The sanders came at about 11:30 this morning and were here for at least 6 hours. I was kind of surprised, since I don't remember the living room sanding taking very long. But it might have seemed like less time since I was the one doing it. Plus it was a smaller area, and unlike the upstairs, it wasn't broken up into little rooms and closets. By 6:30 pm I had freshly sanded floors, and it was time for me to get to work. I swept again, then put on my first coat of shellac. I don't have any photos of the fresh shellac (I'll get some tomorrow), but here is a shot of each room with the newly-naked pine.
