Not a whole lot of progress last week. There has been a lot of snow to shovel and a visit from family! This morning the sun came out for a bit so I scurried around and took a couple of photos.
We have curtains in the living room and dining room! Such a small change, but it really makes it feel like a livable house instead of a construction zone. The curtains are from Ikea. At seventeen dollars a pair I figured I couldn't go wrong. The curtains are ordered from Amazon. I had to search a bit to find an hundred inch long rods that weren't jumbo. These came with curtain rings and are a nice sized five-eighths around.
As you can see, lots of snow! The front windows give you a good view to keep an eye on the neighborhood!
In the back bedroom, I put privacy paper on the door window instead of a blind.
The poor stairs have seen a lot of use. And a lot of different carpets! I have been prepping them for paint. Can't wait to see how they turn out!
I was really nervous the entryway floors weren't going to turn out very good. But they made it! This is between the first and second coats. And I just put the second coat on this morning!
They need to dry a little, but aren't they oh so shiny! I have been working on a post with my method of shellacking/refinishing floors. Hopefully that will be up on the blog next week.
