The 2 Week Home Project Extravaganza

Starting tomorrow, I have the next 2 weeks off from work, so I'm gearing up for a home project extravaganza.  My hope is to finish sanding the stairway (this will get done even if nothing else does!!), stain and shellac the stairs, sand and refinish the floor in the tiny bedroom/nursery, and start prepping the room to actually be a nursery instead of a catch-all room.  I might also drop off the living room windows and the bedroom, closet, and bathroom doors at the Strip Shoppe to save myself some agony.  I'm getting lazy, and it's only 3 years in. 

3 years?!  I had a house-iversary about 3 weeks ago and didn't even realize it!  Time flies when your life is crazy...

I'd also like to skimcoat the office walls, but I'm really not sure that's within my skillset.  That one might stay in the queue for a while yet.  Other unfinished projects include the knob-and-tube wiring I found in the office, finding someone to reverse and hang our "new" front door, finding some way to insulate the pipes to the laundry room/back porch before it freezes, and adding a last coat of dewaxed shellac to the living room floor.  It never ends...!

I'll try to post my progress each day, since it'll keep me motivated to see that I'm actually getting somewhere!

LiriHey, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm loving your blog....both because I'm also renovating a 100 year old farmhouse AND because I spent five years as a child in South Bend in an old farmhouse......some of my best childhood memories are of living in that house which was owend by the farmers across the street. They were known to my brother and I as Grandma and Grandpa Zimmer for the rest of their lives.....
