A little home improvement!

I am a BIG do it yourselfer, I get this from my dad. Ever since I could walk I always would follow my father around wanting to help with every little home improvement. I can remember at a young age he would let me trail behind him and help with the odd job, I even remember getting together scraps of wood and building all sorts of little things out of them and I couldn't have been more than four or five!!!

This has definitely carried on into my life as an adult, and I just can't seem to stop myself...it seems like I always have a home project on the go at one time or another. Today it was refinishing the hardwood floors in my sons room. I have been trying to conquer one room at a time to try to keep things somewhat functional in my daily life. I have finished the floors in entrance way and staircase now I have carried the refinishing into my little guys room. I decided to go with a rich dark chestnut colour and absolutely love it and brings a lot of warmth to the room. Tomorrow I will start adding the varathane and soon it will be good to go...for the meantime anyways!
