More Finished Stuff
Here's a better pic of the bedroom floor, all finished except for the brown caulk that will go in all the seams---I'm saving that for an after dark project now that it seems to be night right after lunch
Same deal with the staircase. All done except for caulk---I want a bead of caulk in all the corners so when I sweep the dirt can't jam under the little crack
The ends are all trimmed with jacareuba. I really wanted to make the treads out of jacareuba but I couldn't cut boards big and flat enough---after ruining the bearings on a friend's band saw, I ended up with enough for the landing, I'll have to settle for that
AnnaMarie wanted a chalkboard for the kitchen. She knew what she wanted and we couldn't find it anywhere, like the bedroom floor. She wanted something framed with 'old white paint'. I bought the chalkboard paint----if you ever use that stuff plan on three coats minimum sanding in between
I went down to the lake and crawled around under the 120 year old boat house and found this 4x4 lying on a stack of old wood. AnnaMarie did the chalk paint, and decided she wanted a couple of the inside of the tallest cabinet door chalkboard too to keep a grocery list. So I decided the inside of one of the doors for the liquor cabinet should be chalkboard too.
Been hanging around my 'starter wife' since 1987; 3 kids together so I'm hoping she'll keep me...Copter rescue medic , hazardous materials response stuff, and Urban Search And Rescue and USFS helicopter manager stuff. Also build houses. Mostly just a dad
