Eight months later and I’m still in love with the cork floors in my kitchen (more on their installation here and here). Seriously, they are amazing. They look great, feel good under my feet, and are easy to clean. If anyone ever asks me how I feel about them, I become a walking infomercial (have you googled ‘cork trees‘ yet? DO. IT. Your mind will be blown). But there was one task leftover from the big install last winter that I never got around to finishing.
For some reason I was nervous about staining it, which I soon realized stemmed from my last attempt at staining. If you don’t remember, I tried to stain a dresser and it was disastrous (more about that here and here). But after a brief tutorial and pep talk from my friend that helped me install the floors, I was ready to just get it done.
It’s a little thing, but it made me happy for a solid week. The transition looks so great now! I should have done it months ago since it only cost $6 and took 15 minutes. C’est la vie!
