Wood floor

Still working on the finishing details.Yesterday hubby and I worked on filling in the floor(where the old wall was and was just a hole in the floor) with new hardwood floor.It was a scary project for us because it involved the dreaded table saw!!!!!!! Luckily it went smoothly and we were able to fill the old hole w/ new hardwood floor.It looks great .We will need to refinish the floor some time in spring.At least I know the kids won't fall thru the hole into the basement!!!!

Almost done!!!!

Our new dining room /study is almost complete!!!!! We spent Valentines day mudding and sanding and then yesterday I painted the room.I ran out of paint so I have to go buy another gallon also I need to paint the trim.It is so nice to see the room looking clean and functional again!!!! I am mopping and re-mopping the dust.We still need to buy wood floorboards for the hole in the floor (where the old wall was).For now we just have a huge plywood board down so no one will fall thru!!! I will post photos after I complete the last touchups!!!!
