get a sample!
You really need to get a sample of this before purchasing. I don't think the stock photos are good representations of what it looks like. The photo with the basket is particularly wrong. The coloring is not that yellow or dark; it's softer, lighter, and with slightly more pink to it. In my opinion the look is not actually very "whitewashed" -- to me it looks more "unfinished." That said, it looks great! There are 3 planks printed on each piece, so each plank is ~2.5" wide. It matches our original 1950's flooring pretty well. carrie
