A Change...will do us good!

One of the first rooms that we painted, back when we first moved in, was the dining room. Back at the turn of the century (ha ha), dark red was The Thing. I still love the color, but after 10+ years, the paint was needing to be freshened up. We decided to go with a different color.

Our wood floors, that J refinished about 5 years ago, are DEFINITELY showing their age (80+ years) as well. Unfortunately, there are some boards that have become so soft, I'm worried about all of us falling through...especially when a certain youngster is bounding back and forth. J tried replacing them as well as shoring them up, from underneath in the basement, but a duct prevented him from getting all of them. He's been feeling the itch to "home improve" and decided to tackle the woodwork (refinish it) and put down some new flooring too.

I'm so fortunate to have a hubby that is good with his hands. God has certainly blessed him with this gift and he loves to use it. Even better is that when he starts a project, it bugs him until it is all finished and cleaned up! No lingering projects with him.

While the woodwork and painting are finished, the bamboo floor will take a little longer since we've got a busy weekend planned. So, goodbye old dining room...

...and hello new one! Here's hoping he gets a few free days at the beginning of March.

Although I hate doing it, I like the end result of home improvements. LOVE the new floor though.
