Uh..floor process snaffoo...........

Sunday, October 13, 2013

The living/dining room floor is dry and needs one more coat. But....oh looks like the shiny finish and not the satin finish that I want. The worker said he used a new can of liquid and it is labeled exactly the same as all the other cans. He said he did stir it before applying it.

Now the bedroom area has a satin finish and the living/dining room area has a shiny finish. I am not happy. I have heard the shiny finish shows more scratches and is harder to keep looking clean and nice.

He said he will carefully stir the can before using it. We are hoping it turns out to be the satin finish after all. Maybe the third coat will have the correct satin finish! I sure hope so!

I certainly do not want to have to get another can of the stuff and repaint it. One coat of the correct stuff would be enough. But I am sick of the whole process. DH is now in the bedroom asking to be gotten out of bed. I am just tired and it is 2:25 in the afternoon on a Sunday afternoon. He has been staying in bed longer on Sunday mornings (I have no aide on Sunday mornings). But 2 in the afternoon is pushing it. emoticon

    Hope you don't vex too much over the SNAFU.

I'm sure it will be fine. It will be such an improvement, that it will look so good you won't notice the difference in gloss.

Fowled (or worse)

SNAFU is a Military term, they love their acronyms! This is a well used word in our house!
