living room, october 31
dining room, october 31
soooo… the construction project was going to be done this week. but once the contractor started putting up the trim, we realized that the base board and base shoe were not going to be wide enough to conceal the icky, unfinished flooring that sat under the original trim. it didn’t occur to previous owners to remove said trim before sanding the floors down, so there’s a nice 1-inch hump of unfinished floor, bordered with a line of thick, old paint where the 1/2-inch base shoe should go.
now in order to finish, i need to have the floors refinished. the edges cannot be fixed without sanding and re-coating the entire floor.
but the end is in sight. floors will be started next monday, and will hopefully be done in 3 days. then the trim will be finished up, and i’ll do one last coat of paint. and i’m hoping the contractor is done walking into my house daily (at 7:30am and chatting my ear off for 30 minutes while i stand there in my bathrobe and wet hair wishing he’d shut up [yes! i'm getting tired of it!]) after next week. then i’m reserving thanksgiving weekend for putting ikea furniture together. until then, bear with me, i’m a little stressed…
