New Hardwood Floors: Second Floor Reveal!

Today Tal finished installing
oak hardwood floors in our upstairs loft area and hallway!

About 10 days ago, Tal ripped out the carpet that was dirty, stained, and 15 years old:

After throwing the carpet over the railing and into our entry, 
Tal removed all the staples on the sub floor:

Last Saturday, Tal's mom drove 3 hours to help Tal start laying the hardwoods:

It was tedious and time consuming installing the bullnose and hardwoods at the top of the stairs
Tal was grateful for his mom's help and expertise!

After 5 days and about 25 hours, Tal finished laying the hardwoods this week
...and we love the results!

I painted 64 feet of molding, 
and then Tal spent a couple hours installing it yesterday:

Our hardwoods are Bruce Gunstock in Dundee:

Originally,Tal and I were going install new carpet upstairs next spring. However, after Tal and Uncle Kenny finished installing hardwoods on our first floor last month, we had 8.5 boxes leftover. Instead of wasting money and flooring, Tal and I decided to put hardwoods upstairs.
We used all of the leftover flooring plus three more boxes!

After waiting 5 years, 
Tal and I are excited to have updated flooring throughout our house!
