A Little Progress on the Home Front
I get asked quite often how the house is coming along. Painfully slow is usually how I respond. The best thing I can report on right now is how beautifully the wood is turning out after the stain and varnish has been removed. I really liked the dark stain, but over the years people kept adding more and more stain making it uneven and there was a lot of paint splattered all over. Now that it's stripped it looks practically brand new. We also now have a half bath on the parlour floor. I love the little corner sink, but I don't like the faucet I got. I need to exchange it, but for the time being it does the trick. Here are some photos:

A good before and after shot of the built in cabinetry.
Some shots of the corner sink with the faucet I don't like. Also, we reused the paneling from the kitchen in the half bath. I like the way it turned out. Looks like it's always been there. We used the traditional white hexagonal tiles on the floor and I'm going to wallpaper (gasp).
