Wow! It has been a crazy long time since we last spoke! Sorry about that.
In the meantime, I haven't stopped working... I have an awful lot to update on the To-Do list for my Bedroom.
Here is what it looked like the last time we spoke,
Here is where I actually am in the to-do scheme of things.
In some ways it feels so close, in others, I worry I will never get to that last step...
That could be because I have hit a bit of a snag in the "sanding" process for the floor. The floors in this room are Maple, but they have seen decades of tenants and NEED some TLC.
Now, I know I can't be trusted with a drum sander, it is way to easy to dig through to the first floor, so I thought to myself (and out loud to my family and friends) "I can just use a belt sander. It is smaller and easier to control... sure it will take a little longer, but the results will be worth it..."
After repeatedly gouging my floor in several places, because as it turns out, I can't be trusted with a belt sander either... I am now in the market for a contractor to do that part for me...
I have no problem admitting that everyone else was right. Belt-sander=Bad Idea.
I will post pictures of my progress soon.
Sorry to keep you all out of the loop for so long.
