We're not any closer to a solution for a floor yet...Trav wanted to immediately re-sand and get to work on it but I talked him into living with it all week and thinking on it-then work on it next weekend. I'd rather not just jump into it without figuring it all out first.
So instead I got Mr. Antsy Pants to hang a some things on the walls finally. Funny how much of a difference a room feels once you get something hung up!!
We also started chipping off old veneer from an antique desk to re-do for Chloe's room-that project may take a little while so more on that later...
I finally got Travis to carry the old ice cream table OUT of the kitchen and replace with an antique bench we've had for awhile. I still remember when we found the bench-before kids- when would actually go places for long weekends-lol. We had gone to Hermann Missouri during Octoberfest and stayed in a bed and breakfast and toured wineries. It was such a neat town with awesome antique stores. Lugging this sucker home in our Blazer was fun lemme tell ya-it's a lot longer than it looks.
Our plan all along was to make a bench with storage underneath along the front of the kitchen windows but there has just been so many other things to do to make the house "live-able"...this will work great for the time being and sure beats looking at that table and pile of shoes! :)
