I have a bit of catch-up to do, so this batch of photos is from the first week of February, finishing up a few things in anticipation of moving.
Getting a second coat of paint on the floors.
Crandon is getting the clothesline back up, after the tenting.
Yes, we have a lot of these pictures! Seems mud and buckets and water never get boring.
Our house is looking very bare and packed up.
Bare, except for the piles of boxes everywhere!
Help from a friend! We have been so blessed by many family and friends who have helped in many different ways!
And the finished floors! I'm really happy with how they look. The sponging was a big job, covering 400 sq/ft twice over, on my knees! I did it all in one night, and Mom came after work to keep me company. I spent five hours sponging, plus about three hours doing the base coats.
I love to see all these floors looking the same now, instead of three different patterns coming together right here.
Crandon made this beautiful cutting board top for a counter-height cabinet I found on Craigslist. The kitchen has one relatively short run of built in cabinets, with the range free-standing across from them. This cabinet adds quite a bit more counter space, plus drawers.
All ready to move in and start making this place home! The kitchen is so important to me, to function as well as possible, to be clean, and to make pretty, because so much of our daily life takes place in the kitchen!
