Now for some *in the process pics*! This is the diningroom again..... when we pulled up the carpet(a friend and I and a bottle of wine) we discovered not lovely hardwood floors like we were hoping but nasty yellow tile! So...being women and already half way thru the wine we decided to keep going. My husband was away at the time and when he called he was scared we would be to the bare floorboards by the time he got home! We got a hammer and a pry bar and proceeded to tear up the tiles and the plywood underlay below it. And we found beautiful old wide plank floors which we sanded and restained in a walnut color.The living room wasnt quite so easy to sand as there were spots with no stain at all and spots where it was almost a black waxy type of stain. Of course thats because many years ago they just stained around the mats!
And of course Pearse HAS to be in the pics!! He wasnt happy with all the noise and dust.
Almost finished.....It was hard to get a good shot of how they looked when they were done but I will add them anyways. The first is the diningroom after the floors and blue paint were gone! And half decorated for Christmas! Floors are not as dark as they look.
Next is a couple pics of the livingroom floors all finished!I have yet to paint the livingroom so any suggestions on colors would be awesome...just no blue! Thanks for looking at the beginning of my old house project.....I have years of work ahead of me!

Last but not least I have two *Fur babies*! Pearse was my 40th birthday present and the best present I ever got. He is my best buddy and knows all my secrets. My loveable 85 pound Golden retriever. This is him with our beloved Savannah who left us last year.
Harley the cat I adopted when we moved to this house and he is probably the most active cat I have ever had. He can jump to the ceiling and gets onto and into everything! Still a little cutie and I love him too!
Well this got kind of long.....but there you have it. My little family! Have a great Saturday everyone.
