I feel like I didn’t get anything done today because the flooring in the dressing room still isn’t in. That said, I haven’t be sitting around!
The weather was beautiful so I took everything out of my large pass-through compartment, set aside things I want to donate, and then loaded up one of my large RubberMaid tubs with all my cold weather gear. While gathering all of that together, I made up another bag of things to donate. I then reloaded the pass-through and came inside to tackled the floors.
This project has officially turned into a nightmare. It is a huge job to get as neat an edge as possible near the walls. I have to pry up a board, snap it as close to the wall as possible, and then use a hammer and chisel to reduce the protruding edge to splinters that I pull out with pliers. It’s a small and awkward space to work in and I am so sore from twisting my body into a position from which to inflict maximum damage on the wood. My dad’s chisels are getting quite a workout!
Tomorrow, I will focus on getting that floor done and then move on to finishing up my study.
I also have some furniture shopping to do, but I think I will need to go to Nanaimo for that. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an affordable lingerie chest in Campbell River? And how many people don’t know what such a thing is? It’s a tall, skinny dresser. Guess where I’m going to be putting it.Share on Facebook
