Dining Room Before
We removed the flooring and subfloor, leveled the beams with sister beams by locating the highest point in the apt and raising the lowest part to the highest part of the floor with no more than a 1/4″ difference. We then installed new wide plank flooring and stained the red oak flooring to a Royal Mahogany color. We also removed the old the base molding and replaced it with a 3-piece base molding in order to bring the molding high enough throughout the apt. We also removed the fireplace surround, the fireplace mirror and inserted a piece of absolute black granite for bottom piece and for the fireplace surround. We also put new molding and replaced the mirror with a beveled edge. We removed the the dining room chandelier and inserted a decor dimmer.
