Family Room :: Family :: Busy Weekend


I am grateful for free, salvage hardwood that matches our 50-year-old oak floors.

I am.


However, every single blasted piece had to be inspected and scrubbed. A hot, wet, dirty job.





Some of these old boards are warped, chipped . . . but to us it looks fantabulous!



This is what we do with non-salvageable wood.



This weekend, our nephew and niece visited with their three little ones.

We be busy!

Doggie Pool = Instant Sandbox!

Making garden stones . . .



 My nephew, Carl, helped remove the old 1970’s brass fire place front.



We have special plans for the fireplace, which I hope to share soon.

What did you do this weekend?

    1. Thank you, Ginene! I do love my new floor (if you’d seen the wall-to-wall. eeew. gross.). I’m so glad we were able to do this. But, I don’t think I’d like to work with salvaged flooring again. It was way too hard work for George and I. I think we’re just getting too old. 😉
