Kitchen Floor Complete

After far too long, the kitchen floor is finally done. Jessica swept the floor first, then I wiped it down with a sponge and water. After the slate was completely dry, I applied a simple penetrating grout/tile sealer. Then I mowed the front yard. The slate had completely absorbed the sealer after I finished mowing, so I went ahead and applied the final product, a "stone enhancer/sealer". This product brings out the colors in the stone, makes it darker, and gives it a slight glossy look (at least until it gets dirty). Have a look-see:

We're going to avoid walking on it tomorrow; hopefully it'll be dry and pedestrian-friendly by Saturday. It does feel nice to have this done, but now I must move on to other tasks which, I'm afraid, will seem very foreign to me, as I've done almost nothing but lay tile/slate since March.

The floor is beautiful, as are all the other home improvement projects you guys have tackled. I think I could hear angels rejoicing all the way over here in Gallatin!

I am thrilled with how the floor looks. I can't wait to see it. I'm so proud of you!

Thanks to you both. We're very happy with the way things are turning out. We'd love to have you come see it, Mom (and Debbie, too, of course).
