WIP::week3


it felt quite good to finish and send my Vintage Button Swap package. yesterday felt quite productive. i sent my package and changed our address then went drop off our unwanted things at Goodwill. of course since i was there i had to just stop in and see what they had. i was quite happy with my findings, photos will follow soon for that.

Miss. A was dropped off at the in-laws for the night so we were free to make a big mess at the new place once we got the keys. last night we ripped up the carpet in the livingroom, hall and bedrooms and were pleased with what we found. the bedrooms are in worse shape then the livingroom. now we are off to rip up the tack strips along the walls before Miss. A comes back this afternoon. the fun is just starting...

Wow! It looks fantastic! Isn't it funny that people used to think it was better to carpet over those floors, and now we spent so much time, money and effort to restore them? Great job!

Just trying comment box for you. I must admit in hind sight one task at a time is wonderful but it doesn't always work that way. Lots of luck and it will be so satisfying.

We are so thankful for our hard wood floors, so much prettier than the wall to wall that usually was put down.

Your floors look great.

the floor does look very good. it's hard work but in our experience it is very satisfying to look back on everything we have done to make our house really ours. doing it with a small child is another story though!
