When we moved in a year ago, the hardwoods were in horrible condition. They were covered in a wax that just looked dirty. It wouldn't come off and we didn't even eat in the dining room because the room didn't feel clean. I felt like I had to explain to guests that our floors weren't dirty, just stained. :)
They just needed to be refinished and now they are fabulous. We are so thrilled. And, we eat in the dining room every day.
