This week is a shortened blog due to the 3 of us madly racing around to get the showroom back into order after finally....drumroll....our timber flooring renovations have been completed!  Oh...we are so happy to be able to announce that we will officially be welcoming customers back into the showroom from early next week, however we have had a few people popping their heads in today and even made some sales in amongst the topsy turvy state of things!

Thanks to our friends Queensland Timber Flooring, we now have a beautiful new floor surface which showcases all of the gorgeous timbers and finishes available through this well established Sunshine Coast based company.

This process has taken a few weeks due to the huge expanse of flooring to be laid and also the very special sections with parquetry.
First, the plastic and particle board were laid over the existing concrete meaning all furniture need to be moved either into storage or covered in plastic and sealed.  Then the timber boards were laid, then sanded and finally coated with a low toxic water based finish which is very durable, eco friendly and can be walked on within an hour of you can see in the photos, not only is the finish really nice on the eye, but also it brings out the richness of the timbers handsomely.

...And now to big job of not only bringing our beautiful pieces out of storage and onto the floor, but also unwrapping some of our 'goodies' that the girls have been absolutely busting to place insitu.  The results are already looking impressive and we have only just started today...
