We just used wood filler and sanded it. It is kind of a modern but rough look, and that is the point. Think of stained concrete floors. Just FYI, it has also worn nicely over the years.

My first question. How does the plywod flooring maintain its look. Is it hard to take care of? - I am an licensed interior designer and I like doing things a little different than the norm and I am crazy about plywood floors. I understand this is your subfloor that has been stained a dark wood color and ployurethaned many times. LOVE IT - love the seamless look and LOVE the price. I think I can do this myself in my little cottage, I have orientals scattered around - doyou think I can keep the floors in good shape just me and my cat?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Joel added a TV cabinet underneath the island countertop that he plans to paint soon to match. A major remodel of the 1920s home took place in the 1950s. It is difficult to discern if the extension was intended as a porch or something else. Beyond the beam and columns, the ceiling curves and slopes.LL: Who or what inspires your personal style?K: Although we both appreciate the midcentury modern parts of the house, we also believe that every home renovation needs to be approached from its historical context. We wanted to create a place that had a sense of history but was comfortable for our growing family.
The home appears much larger than its 672 square feet, due to light walls, a pitched ceiling and large windows.
A waterside island with a lot to hide. In this modest cabin on stilts over Puget Sound, space is at a premium. The homeowners tucked their TV right into the island, where it hides behind cabinet doors when not in use. See the rest of this home
