yellow pine tongue and groove boards for a floor
My husband and I are having a hard time deciding what to do with some yellow pine tongue and groove boards we saved from total demolition at Fort Ritchey. I have thought about using them for my kitchen floor. Or maybe for our living room floor. We have just enough to do one or the other, but not both. I have tossed around the idea of using it for chair railing in my living room as well.
If anyone is wondering why this is so hard for me to decide...
1. I have no idea how durable yellow pine is.
2. I don't know how it takes stain or looks with just a poly finish.
3. There is kind of a hit and miss philosophy at our house. We will use things where we think they will look good.
4. Our taste is simple, country and rustic.
If anyone has any ideas or has used yellow pine for anything, please let me know. I'm dying to hear of anything you might be able to supply me with.
