Done! Almost..........

What a day! We worked our *%$^ off but we got our room 95% done. My wonderful son Nick came over in the morning with piles of tools, including two saws. He had done all the floors in his condo, so he was our instructor.
He also did all the cutting, because frankly, Hubby and I both like having all ten of our fingers and would like to keep it that way.
We did our share of the work though. It was funny how...at the beginning.....we were all fighting over whose turn it was to put the next board in. By the end.......we were all saying, "you do it!"
Our completed living room. We do have a smidge of painting to do on the baseboard where Hubby had to countersink (cool word, huh?) the nails and I wood-putty'd them and the little putty'd holes will be painted over tomorrow. Of course, I also have to put the curtains up and redecorate the walls but............ain't that floor pretty??

It's gorgeous! It came out very well. Now if ever you leave work, you can have a new career. Wouldn't you just love that?
