It's new, baby!
I just spent an hour researching how to post a slideshow of these photos, so you don't have to scroll -with no luck! Below, the photos show our (I really did nothing to help) weekend project! The first few show the before pictures, and the others are the after shots. The before pictures almost look like the floor is dusty, but that's just how it was! It's super shiny now, and we just took the first steps. We're keeping Trice out of the area, and we've put up road blocks so she doesn't go in there. Johnny says we need to leave it sans-furniture for a whole week! So, this afternoon I spent some time rearranging the kitchen table in the kitchen (sounds normal, I know. But, there's no room in our actual kitchen - the table usually resides in the dining room!). Luckily, I was able to squeeze it in next to the booth we have on the other end of the kitchen.
Dust! Everything was coated from the dust after they sanded. I tried to clean some things up and it's looking mostly put back into place. Sort of.
While they sanded, Rachel and I shopped. We made it only a few hours before we were tired - guess that happens to pregnant ladies? Haha.
We crashed at my mom and step-dad's house, to dodge the smell of the polyurethane. We (Johnny, Trice and I) slept on a futone unsuccesfully - but it worked ok! Trice apparently thinks she's always deserving of a spot on the bed.
Today we lit candles and a few Scentsy's - maybe I'm just used to the smell but I don't think it's too noticeable now, and will hopefully get better with time!
Next weekend, I can't WAIT to move the furniture back to it's correct spot!
The next step is to put the new doors on for the baby room closet and entrance to the room. I don't think it will feel finished until the wainscoting and trim is FINALLY put up. The goal is to have that all done by the end of February!
