I'm Floored

While out and about I picked up a free copy of the Indianapolis House and Home magazine. Of course the lead story is about the upcoming Indianapolis Home Show which in it's 85th year is the oldest home show in America. I'll certainly try to get tickets.
But another article about hardwood floors tucked in the back caught my eye, particularly this statement. "To provide even more options, many flooring manufacturers often distress the various types of wood, creating a one-of-a-kind look." The article goes on to explain how they use chains, wire brushes and scrapers to obtain just the right look.
I'm not sure why I've been so concerned about refinishing our hardwood floors when we already have a unique wear pattern. Once again, by simply NOT doing anything, we have fallen back in step with fashion:-)
