Home Improvement #39


Yes....I realize it's April and you are looking at a Christmas picture...BUT I have to dig in to the achieves to show my before and after pictures!!!!  While working on restaining ans refinishing our floors, we decided we might as well go ahead and give our fireplace some TLC.
Our little Acorn Cottage was built in 1942, so it's always kind of an adventure taking things apart and seeing how things were built back in the day.
This is what our living room looked naked with one color of stain on the floors.
This is the floors with the second coat of stain and 3 coats of varnish!
We decided the color "Clam Chowder" lloked like pastel yellow on our walls, and opted for Eddie bauer "Pecan".
Here is the finished product!  We selected Travertine stone and are VERY HAPPY with the results.  I think Dan-the-Man has a massage coming to him after all his hard work.
