happy weekend

I decided to strip the paint off of my floors. For lots of reasons, but the main one being that we had a water leak and had to replace part of it. So rather than match the paint on the new section (probably a 2 hour job), I decided to strip it all off and do something different (feels like a 200 hour job). I hope it's worth it. I finished up the stripping and sanding this week. I'm not sure my hands and wrists (and knees) will ever be the same, but I am excited to try a white wash.

In other news, Oliver's car, the Blur, placed third in the Pinewood Derby. Always a fun time, that derby.

And Mabel is competing in state Geography Bee this morning. Eek! I'm so nervous for her.

This weekend is going to be a busy one, unfortunately, but I am hoping for a nap anyway.

Have fun!


  1. Go Mabel! I should have quizzed her on Africa - I know that geography waay better than I know the US. pathetic!

    I can't imagine the work to strip a parquet floor but it looks amazing! White wash is a brilliant idea.

  3. Wow, that is a lot of work! I think it will be lovely! Good luck!

  4. I love that floor Stephanie-even just as it is, it looks so pretty!

  5. I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I enjoy having the hottest virtual strippers on my desktop.
