What happened this week ?
Good thing too because our marble has been ordered and is on its way to our city and should be ready in two weeks. Oh I have some great news to share. Our sink that I had to order which is a single bowl, square edged stainless steel, 16 gauge , deep sink came in way under what it was supposed to. Comparable sinks come in typically around $700 ours came in $330 and it is Canadian made and so so stylish. Amaze Balls!!!
So I was able on Wednesday to hand sand the entire floor with my orbital sander , each joint had to be sanded smooth. I maybe should have rented a big sander but I wanted to use what I had readily available. I duct taped my sander to the shop vac to keep the dust down. And after checking and emptying the shop vac I kept an enormous amount of dust from our environment. It was full of fresh pine dust.
So then onto staining. That was a crazy huge messy job, second guessing my decision there for a minute.
They are colourful aren't they ???? Mason wanted a short pageant style dress, she loves the ideas of pageants because of toddlers and tiara's , too funny. The dress looked perfect on her . She tried on about 6 and we found just the right one for her. It was a painless , fun and successful shopping trip.
So that is mush of what happened this week. Got the down payment on the marble paid so that is in motion now , yippy.
Moving on to removing some kitchen cabinets, adding a gable to the fridge area and installing a deeper cabinet above from IKEA, thank you IKEA $48 is all that will cost. Moving over the entire all of uppers beside the fridge too , not so exciting. Gonna be sore again ...
