Snow Storm

This is a picture of our backyard this morning and the snow is still coming down.  Looks like an Enchanted Snow Forest outside.

House Project #29

 Our little 1942 Acorn Cottage needed some TLC.  When we bought the home, the bedrooms and hallway had carpet on them, and it wasn't until we had lived here a couple of years we discovered there we hardwood floors underneath. TREASURE TROVE!!!  They were pretty battered, with stains and dings, but we saw the potential of what could be.
This picture really isn't out of focus.....it's the blur from all of the dust floating around from Dan-the-Man sanding them!
 We decided to do two colored stains. A dark walnut with English chestnut over the top to add a little warmth.
 Coat numero uno of varnish.....2 more to go!
The final product!  Love the rich warm colors!  Just have to put the trim back up on the bottom of the baseboard and then I can move get the art room back into place. NEXT...The Guest room.  So excited as I have projects I have been working on such as a ceiling medallion to frame the beautiful chandelier I found at an Antique Shop. STAY TUNED!
