And the floor staining is done. Phew!
This morning before Drew and I went to the gym I took 15 minutes and finished staining the upstairs hallway. It feels so good to look at it now and not see something partially finished. I raced to do it before heading out so we’d have the two hours while we were at the gym for it to dry and then during the two hours I planned out for Drew and I to run errands. It was definitely still pretty tacky when we returned home, hence the space heater to generate some extra heat. Anyone who knows us knows that our house pretty much never gets above 63 degrees. Oil heat isn’t cheap, friends.
As I type this AJ is finishing up the last little bit of polyurthaning on the floors in the master, where it has finally dried after three days. We know we’ll be waiting even longer for the poly to dry, which is a bummer, because we’re itching to get back in there. You should see the guest room, it is crazyland right now.
All right, are all of you decorators for minor holidays like Valentine’s Day? I don’t get super into it but do have some fun stuff up my sleeve for this coming week. Tell me, what was the best Valentine’s Day project you’ve seen the year? What’s inspired you?
