Ordinary Miracles… the hardwood floor picture

This is the floor.  Swank, huh? And this part was the most labor intensive. The renovation process is like an archeological dig. Layers of decorating ideas. This floor was hiding under two layers of vinyl flooring, an osb subfloor, another layer of very interesting linoleum, numerous layers of paint and stain.  After removing all of that, and the nails and staples and dirt between the boards, a stain is applied and layers of urethane varnish.

Come on! Do I know how to have fun or what!Underneath the cats is the new bathroom sink and tap. I am just reviewing the renos so far as a’ rah rah team’ kinda moment.     And …just to show what a bit more stain and varnish can do…This is a utility shelf from IKEA. pretty good looking.

The cat boys… waiting for dinner. Mine, not theirs.
