It was my birthday this past weekend! What did I do to ring in the big 29? I drank a case of beer and sanded/stained my miles of hardwood floor. My husband also brought me Taco Bell for dinner…. so it was pretty awesome. Can you tell how much I loved it? Ok, my birthday was sort of lame. But the floors made up for it. They look so pretty. And my dad finished sheet rocking the bar section of the kitchen. Hello cocktail party!!
Removing all the trim and carpet tack strips. My fingers look like I was attacked by a small snake.
Pre-birthday sanding extravaganza
We opted to use an orbital sander instead of a drum sander because there is less room for totally f-ing up the floors.
