|Satin purchase this week - ooh, ahh!|
After painting the ceiling and walls, we tackled the trim and gave it all a fresh coat of brilliant white. Oooo, and there's a bonus - I took up the 1990s jacked-up Stain Master carpet and was delighted to find that the original red oak floors were in super shape! I am a lover of hardwood floors, especially in these old homes where the wood is often unique - why not expose those beautiful floors if they are in good condition! Of course, in the picture my floor isn't looking so hot because there's still carpet dust all over and a gazillion carpet pad staples to yank out (carpet layers get real happy with those staples - I think Maria and I pulled put about 200+). Did I mention I hate tack strips? Anyway, after a good sweeping and mopping (the mop water was a scary dark gray), the floor looks great! All that's left to do is add the quarter-round around the base boards and start moving in furniture and accessories - whoohoo!
One project down! Happy sewing (and home improvement)! :)
