Several people have asked to see pictures of the floors we put in last spring. We did our whole upstairs with click together pergo-style flooring, and we’ve been very happy with it. The first picture here shows our hallway, with the floors we installed, and one of the bedroom doors that we replaced over the last few weeks. The doors came from Home Depot as bare wood – we had to sand, stain, varnish, and cut all the holes and notches for hinges and doorknobs. Quite a project, but we’re happy with how they turned out. The mirror on the wall came from a thrift store last week, for five bucks.
These pictures are the before and after of the end table that I found at the same thrift store, for four dollars. I paid another three dollars for the drawer pull, since I decided the one that came with it was a tad bit dated. We’re thrilled with how it turned out – all I did was sand off the old finish, sand down the wavy edges, and varnish the bare wood. Our living room is looking much better.
