The sweet taste of success.

I am beginning the poly process tonight on the buffet. The poly process is alot less work than the staining- atleast I assume. We are waiting to start the drawers. If weather permits we'll probably be working on them outside this weekend.

In near future news- I am going to begin sanding the stairs once I've fully completed the buffet. The last thing I want in my life is more sawdust all over my house but this will be the last sanding project we do oursleves for a bit. We are also going to be paying someone to come in and sand the floors in the office and the upstairs hall. I have a feeling it'll cost around $500 give or take. The room isn't very large nor is the hall. Having those floors redone will make a huge impact on the upstairs. I CAN'T WAIT!

Outside we have begun ripping out bushes and I am going to start seeding our non-existent grass this week. I'll post photos soon.

More exciting news- we just had family move near us (John & Kendra) right down the street. They got an awesome fixer upper as well and I'm hoping they blog about it as well. We are super excited to have them as neighbors!!!

Sorry I haven't updated this in so long. I hope you're still reading the blog.
