Frustrating, really... because I have been so careful to keep up to date with posting our home renovations.
They are so intense.
It is my hope- that by blogging, I will not only always recall where I've been, but all it took to get here.
Also, to perhaps prepare another for what lies ahead in a major remodel.
I last blogged 2 weeks ago about PAINT & Week 1 in the dining room remodel...
or as our daughter eventually called it...
The Tardis of Dining.
Dining Room Renovation Week 2 was All about What Lies Beneath.
The floors were completely stripped of previous flooring
and the wood slats prepared for installation
Over a period of 3 days,
the boards are individually adhered in place
and weighted down with cement buckets whilst the dry.
**separators were placed at wall seams to allow space for expansion
3 weeks later:
And the dining room is now (mostly) updated!
New windows, floors, & paint!
I was in Florida this past week visiting family.
Over a one week visit we shared exploring a few quilt shops...
My baby sister hospitalized 3 days for an emergency procedure
After 3 days she was discharged and all is good now
When I returned last night,
much of our son's music & instruments had been removed from the front room
it is once again accessible and ready for further unpacking.
The dining room furniture is back in place, and as I continue to unpack, I am sure it will begin to look more & more like home.
All paint is Sherman Williams.
