House Update

Thought I'd share a photo of the latest look of our wood flooring since I applied the tung oil 11 days ago. It is reclaimed wood from a barn in New York. Now it's a floor for a house in Alaska!

The floor got the Bernese Mountain Dog seal of approval today. The dogs got to walk on it for the first time since I oiled it and my male, Tonka, dug his nails in while rough housing...not a mark on the floor at all!

The only progress on the new house today was I finally hung the mirror in the powder's only been sitting on the floor for 2 months.

I did buy some glass knobs for the cabinet...and I almost installed them...but my personal drill is hidden in my sewing room at the current house so I need to take that next time. I don't have man hands so I get tired of trying to use tools made for men.

And there was a typo on the Breakfast Club's not until next Thursday...which is the last Thursday of the month. It's just as well...I needed to spend time on the phone today trying to schedule people to finish working on our new house. We are so close to being done...we are certainly ready to start moving.

the flooring looks fantastic-glad it passed the doggie test. I'm all for pretty and nice but if you can't live with it what's the point! I'm sure you're itching to get moved in.
