Lots of Woodwork

IMG_2178

 

Today started out as a beautiful day, and we got up bright and early, ready to get back to work on our projects.

Both Harry and I got busy working on doors and trim.

This is the door that we bought to replace the door with the cat door in it. Today was door staining day! That was one of Harry’s jobs.

He also finished the trim in the downstairs bathroom…

and stained the trim around the office door.

 

In the meantime I was working on using the restor-a-finish stuff on the older trim and doors in the house.

The door on the left has been started, and the one on the right has not.

Everything is done in this one except the lower section on the right hand door.

This kind of touch up is a little tedious, but it seems so nice to  knock some more jobs off the list.

We are finished for the day now, and doing a little relaxing for what remains of our weekend.

Just 8 days left until our next trip!

  9. It is so obvious that your home is going to be in "move in " condition when it goes on the market. You would think that all home owners who are selling their home would have their home in that condition when the put it on the market, but they don't. Great Job.

    1. Thanks Jim! We have worked hard on it. We know we aren't going to recoup all the money we've put into it, but we are hoping we've bought ourselves a pretty quick sale.
