scenes from the weekend |week 34

October 31, 2017

It’s been a long while since I did one of these! But here I’m back reporting on the antics we were up to this past weekend. Nope, we weren’t bar crawling in our best halloween costumes, but rather sanding down our floors! It was as exciting as it sounds.

We started friday by renting an orbital sander to get the ball rolling, and by saturday morning, we were off renting a belt sander to speed up the process. All in all, we were sanding for 17 hours, and we are still not done! We originally put water based polyurethane on the floors which somehow reacted with the red oak floors, so now today we are back to sanding and then finishing it off with an oil based polyurethane this time around. We are praying this is the end of sanding!





It was a long weekend! But it’ll be great to have the floors finished. Soon enough, we’ll be able to move upstairs (we are living out of our dining room currently). I’m the luckiest though to have Mark, who works so hard and is patient and hugs me when I’m frustrated and want to just re-carpet the whole upstairs. Ha!
