Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Wood floors installed!

Wahoo! The wood is all installed. Since it will be sanded and finished on site, we decided it was a job for the pros. We got four bids for getting the install/sand/finish of new floors on the main level plus sand/finish of existing floors. We are glad we got lots of quotes because we feel really confident we got the best price and so far have been pleased with the quality of work as well.

The new floors were laced in with the old so when its all refinished, it will look like it was done all at the same time (forgot to take a picture of this). We have solid red oak already in the entry and kitchen and just matched it. The plan is to go darker on the stain. But for right now, we are in the waiting phase because the wood has to get acclimated to the house for several weeks before they finish it off. Now for the before and afters.

 We are deciding on new trim in this pic too. 4 inch is on the left 3 inch on the right. We are going with 3 inch since it looks better with the 8ft ceilings.

I was so happy yesterday, I laid on the floor to do some wood angels. It was a good idea until I remembered raw wood can give you splinters :)
