Renovating the 100 year old farm house my mom grew up in – making it a place for us to grow old in.

I tackled the staining of the floors over two days this week. After work Joe found me just finishing up, taking the stain right out the front door. My poor knees, hands, lungs… ohmygosh everything I have on me hurts and then I had to basically bathe mineral spirits to get it all off of me. That was not a fun job!! However, it was totally worth it. Don’t those floors look incredible?! The next day I got the first coat of poly acrylic done after work on Friday and then Joe joined me later on Saturday to help me finish the second coat.

While I was in the house getting the floors complete on Saturday Joe eventually finished laying down all of the deck boards. Did the deck ended up a tad bigger then I expected? lol yeah, a tad! 700 square feet of decking!? What was I thinking? Of course I was thinking about family and get togethers and birthday parties and late night bon fire and, of course, the wedding too!
