It’s been a full week full of home improvement, and having company. I took some time off to deal with Project #1 (getting a new shed), and Project #2, which is renovating my spare bedroom.
The shed is in, and The Flirt has been busy filling it up and organizing all the stuff that has to go back in it.
The spare room is almost done. The walls are painted, and the floor has been sanded down and clear coated. It looks so nice, and feels so fabulous under bare feet!
This old floor is full of imperfections, but it has so much personality. I had no idea just clear coating it would give it such a rich color. I’m so glad we didn’t stain it!
The floor extended from the room down the hallway, so we sanded the glue off of that too. I’m so happy with the result!
It’s hard to believe we got such a beautiful floor out of something that had been so damaged.
So, we went from this:
You might wonder why it looks like I am putting the bed back into the room before the wainscoting and trim molding is put on. Well, the short answer is that I am so completely done, I just need to get stuff out back in this room and get the rest of my house put back in order.
There’s sawdust everywhere, and my kitchen and living room are full of all the things that have to go back into that room.
Not only that, but my budget for these two projects is cooked. Time to regroup and save up some money for finishing up the room later. It will be functional enough until then.
Here’s wishing you all well in whatever projects you have going on. It feels so good to get these big projects done!
