A. worked like a MAN POSSESSED all weekend. Arms and legs FLYING! So, I'm a-crawlin' out of my blogging slump to write something.
Specifically, a big thank you to my best friend and helpmate who is SO talented and dedicated. Because, a little over two years ago, we bought this...
(That is our pal, Dave, and his lovely daughter...)
...which, because of extensive water damage to the plaster/raccoons in the attic/other issues, ended up snowballing into THIS about one year in...
...but he has taken us all the way back to THIS!
(It looks even better in person and smells divine, especially compared to Day One.)
It is difficult in the "finish work" stages to get any sense of progress. Tiny details take time and half of a day can roll by while you are still engrossed in the same corner of the same room.
But we HAVE made progress. And I wanted to remind him of what progress he has really made.
(By the way, he is staining and shellacking the wood windows back to their original color. We had two sets of windows on the second floor which had not been stained, so we had a template to go by.)
Have a good week, A :)
