After going back and forth for months on what we were going to do about the dining room floor, we went nuts on it Saturday night. The good news? Our hardwood floors are still underneath. The bad news? There is 1970's linoleum glued to it.
But I'm still happy, because the laminate flooring in our dining room was driving me nuts. Not only is it a different color than our hardwood but it runs in the opposite direction as well.
Rotting wood found in living room windows was a lovely surprise. And not in original budget. Oy!
Figured out my fingers were the best tool to fix hairline cracks in plaster.
After making it through various things breaking down and breaking into our house, we seem to finally be making progress. Slowly. We were told the work being done on the exterior and interior won't be finished until the end of month, which means the majority of decorating won't start until then.
So what is all getting done for the month of June?
- Fixing cracks in plaster walls upstairs
- Painting bedrooms and hallways
- Taking up carpet from bedrooms
- Taking up layers of flooring in dining room
- Taking up layers of flooring in kitchen
- Refinishing most of the wood floors
- Scraping, repairing, and painting exterior wood siding
A little overwhelming, but at the same time I feel like I'm waking from a stupor. Things are finally moving forward, which always pushes you to get more things done. Hey, if Tiger can get his mojo back, so can I.
