what's going on....

Yes, we are still working on our house.

before ~ lots of dust from sanding!
It is taking so long because we did not like the way the floors turned out the first time it was finished so we did it on ourselves.  (not as hard as you would think.)

during

morning nap break
We are now finished with the floors but....

finished floors
We had some water damage in one wall and took that down to the studs.  Dino patched and mudded it this weekend and now we are about to paint!  woo hoo!!  My goal is to have it finished before my birthday in June (wishing on a star ~ please, please, please!)




The dogwood branch above is my color inspirations for the living room.  I'll post more on that soon.

Happy Tuesday!
