Family Room :: Family :: Busy Weekend

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

I am.

Really.

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!

 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?

    • 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. 😉
